The Alzheimer Society of B.C.-the society that provides support to anyone affected by Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia-invited KIMBO Design Inc. to create a social media campaign.

On September 1st, The Alzheimer Society of B.C. launched the Journey of Caring campaign on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, encouraging social media users to donate their profile pictures to help raise awareness during World Alzheimer's Month.

Speaking on behalf of The Alzheimer Society of B.C., Marketing and Communications Manager Christine Leclerc said, "Using social media isn't a priority at most non-profit organizations, and many hesitate to dive right in. We hope Journey of Caring will help us to engage more diverse audiences through this increasingly critical online marketing channel."

The Journey of Caring campaign was developed with social branding services by KIMBO Design Inc., an award-winning digital marketing agency. This included the heart-shaped blue ribbon, logo, image selection, online video and messaging for Facebook posts and tweets using the hashtag #journeyofcaring. KIMBO designed and managed a Facebook ad buy with ad units featuring volunteer Carolyn Herbert's story championing support for caregivers, comedian and spokesperson Colin Mochrie, and calls to donate profile pictures.

KIMBO Design Inc. Principal and Creative Director Kim Pickett said, "Our agency collaborated with Alzheimer Society of B.C.'s in-house marketing team to engage people in ways that supported their existing campaigns, such as Anything for Alzheimer's, and complemented ongoing events, such as World Alzheimer's Month."
