Case Study: Mary Potter Hospice May Appeal

We had the pleasure of helping Mary Potter Hospice raise awareness for their mahi, launch their annual fundraising appeal, and then re-engage with their audience afterwards.
We worked with the fantastic Mary Potter team to plan and deliver a set of both long and short-form videos, along with photography, for their website, social media, and mailouts.
Check out their May Appeal 2023 wrap-up video above, and read on to see their amazing community at work – plus how they achieved a new fundraising record!

May Appeal Key Video 2023

A longer ‘key video’ is perfect to give both existing and potential donors a better understanding of what Mary Potter Hospice does, and why they should be part of it.

This video was used on the website and social media.

May Appeal 2023 Photography

To promote the May Appeal, and raise awareness about the upcoming street collection, we took the hero photos.

These were used on digital billboards, and social media advertising.

Short Form Videos for Social Media

To best reach and engage with audiences on social media, we edited existing footage with new animation to deliver a set of short videos.

These videos are optimised for social media, and were used for normal posts as well as advertising.

Street Appeal 2023 Photography

On the day of the collection, we took photos of volunteers to both acknowledge their contribution and bank photos to promote the event next year.

These were used on social media, and can be used on the website and for future campaigns.

Stories behind the Street Appeal volunteers

While taking photos, we also asked volunteers to share ‘The story behind their bucket’ – what compelled them to support the hospice. People gave some really heartwarming answers, and we chose a simple and candid filming style to fit the genuine nature of the answers.

This video was used on social media, in a thank you email, and can be used on the website.

Street Appeal 2023 New Fundraising Record!

What it’s all about: We were so delighted to hear that Mary Potter Hospice’s appeal was a record-breaking success!

“Together we raised an incredible $122,609! This is the most we have ever raised from a Street Appeal – thank you all so much. This will make a big difference to patients, families and whānau who need our specialist hospice care and support in Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti.” – Mary Potter Hospice
