Campaign Brief Sample 2
We wanted to reach out to you to tell you about our end of year campaign, called "What do you see?". Given the post-Superstorm Sandy devastation that is still affecting so many on the eastern sea board as we head into this winter season, we wanted to learn how people there envisioned the rebuilding of their communities.
This vision for a better, healthier community isn't limited to areas that are afflicted by major disaster, however. Everyone sees the potential for change in the places they love, everyone sees a better reality for their community.
The many answers to the "What do you see?" question exemplify the nature of the projects we love to work on every day, from community centers to better stairwells that will keep out the rain, to a grocery store that comes to you, we use the power of design to make the vision of a better place a reality for thousands of people we work with.
Where others see numerous costal community destroyed by a superstorm, we see a waterfront and a boardwalk being built back just as beautiful and even more resilient than before.
Where other see a slum settlement, we see the opportunity to save lives by providing basic services such as water, sanitation, and power.
Where some see poverty, blight, and the aftermath of natural disaster, at Architecture for Humanity we see a solution for your community using the power of design.
So tell us, when others see the place you love as it is now: What do you see?. #whatdoyousee
