Real women in need

Woodgreen Community Services taps celeb obsession.

We spend a lot of time keeping track of the latest celebrity gossip (raise your hand if you watched Kanye propose to Kim). But have you ever wondered what might happen if we spent as much time caring about people living in poverty? If so, then watch this celeb show spoof by DDB Canada for Toronto-based Woodgreen Community Services’ Homeward Bound program. Or skim through the print ads and OOH that take a cue from gossip mags. The content’s not nearly as entertaining, but that’s sort of the point.
