Any old clothes will do.
You wouldn't be caught dead in them but, for a homeless person, they could mean the difference between life and death. Please donate your unwanted clothes to the homeless this winter.

Came out at the same time, and this campaign won a lot more awards - art direction sets apart.

I find these vaguely patronizing, and just slightly degrading.

I don't think you need to humiliate a subject to highlight it do you?

agree totally. especially this line is degrading:

"You wouldn't be caught dead in them but, for a homeless person..."
well, obviously it's OK for a homeless person to be found dead in.

i agree too, this execution is too much. The bride is great but not this.

benjaminbrown said it right. patronising stuff, exploits the abject misery of the less fortunate to wangle ad awards.

so it has its rough edges but lets agree on one thing, it's a good ad save for the tone of the copy- a bit abbrasive. keep it up!
