Lotto & DDB celebrate giving back

EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Wednesday: New Zealand’s natural generosity is the inspiration behind Lotto New Zealand’s latest campaign, Kiwis Helping Kiwis, out of DDB NZ.

The heart-warming campaign aims to celebrate the small acts of kindness performed by Kiwis every day. “Whether it’s on the water, the rugby field or with your friends, Kiwis help Kiwis because … that’s just what we do,” says DDB chief creative officer Damon Stapleton.

“Lotto NZ is no different, with 100% of their profits used to support over 3000 good causes around the country each year.”

Stapleton says the goal was to create a campaign that recognises all examples of Kiwis helping Kiwis – big and small. 

“When it comes to giving personal time to charity or community projects, Kiwis are incredibly generous,” he said. “We wanted to create a campaign that helps Kiwis stop and reflect on those acts that can have such powerful positive effects.”

Lotto NZ chief marketing officer Annemarie Browne says the uplifting spot perfectly reflects the values of the organisation. 

“Kiwis are always there to lend hand and give back – and that’s what Lotto NZ is all about too. With this campaign, we wanted to showcase some of the great things that Lotto NZ has supported over the years – and it’s all thanks to Kiwis playing our games.”

Lotto NZ’s new campaign will roll out across TV, radio and online.
