  • ActionAid ‘Bollocks to Poverty’ campaign by SOFII This is a very brave campaign. It talks directly to young people in the language they use everyday, with no punches pulled.

But when these ‘postal parent’ advertisements appeared in the UK in the mid 1970s they were state-of-the art, the epitome of direct response fundraising.

It also helped propel a new and little known organisation called ActionAid into the list of Britain's top 20 charities. Action Aid created a new format, which was then copied by dozens, perhaps hundreds of other organisations.
