The international food brand Kellog's wanted to build integrity and trust and so launched its biggest CSR initiative to date, with its 'Give a Child a Breakfast' Campaign. The campaign was a call to arms against child poverty, with the aim of donating two million breakfasts to less fortunate children in the UK.

The Case Study

Central to the campaign was a muli-media partnership with Trinity Mirror, including newspapers such as the Mirror, the Manchester Evening and the Daily Record. In each newspaper there was a mix of advertorial and editorial content, raising awarness of child poverty then getting reafers to actively participate in the cause by helping out with local breakfast clubs.


  • The results were impressive, with over two million breakfasts dontated:
  • 40% of readers considered purchasing a Kellog's product
  • 140% sales increase as a result of the campaign
