Hungarian architecture studio Hello Wood has created an 11-meter-high Christmas tree for a square in central Budapest from 5000 pieces of firewood (around 15,000 kilograms) for the Budapest community. It is said, “on the Twelfth Night after Christmas, the tree will be dismantled, and the firewood will be donated to charity.”. At the top, the wood lengths get longer and protrude out further to form a pinnacle crowned with a metal star. A scattering of the circular sections are painted white to reference the ornaments from traditional fir Christmas trees. And at night, the tree will be illuminated using special lighting effects making it glittering in the dark.
“Stamping down on poaching” is a creative campaign led by Pro Wildlife to raise awareness of wild animal protection. To achieve the awareness required, German angency Guertlerbachmann used a surprising and unseen medium – stamp. They actually designed a set of three donation stamps for Pro Wildlife. The stamp is part of a postcard and is exactly the part of an animal which is the trophy, such as the tusks of an elephant. 50 cents from the sale of each stamp went to Pro Wildlife. With the tagline “Every trophy costs a life. Your donation can save it.”, the campaign successfully raised a total of € 41,000 for Pro Wildlife.
The Bread Art Project was created by the Grain Foods Foundation to help increase awareness of the growing hunger problem in the United States.
In an effort to help end hunger in the United States, the Grain Foods Foundation will donate $50,000 to Feeding America. An additional donation of $1 will be made for each piece of Bread Art submitted.
