For those of you that may have been hiding under a rock for the past few days, let me get you up to speed…
ABC‘s television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is here in Idaho this week. They are working on a home for the Stockdale family of Middleton. CBH Homes is building the new home for the family this week, and as part of the campaign to promote this project, they’ve been working with es/drake to develop the Live Large, Give Large campaign.
This campaign is promoting the fact that the show is here, that things are happening, and is also encouraging the readers to get involved through donations of goods, services, time, or monetary means. If you’d like to know more about what es/drake has done leading up to this point, take a look at their website. If you’d like to get updates on the project itself, take a look at CBH Homes’ website.
On a side note, I have to say that this has been a very effective PR campaign as well. This project has received a tremendous amount of (well deserved) press coverage over the past couple of days. I fully expect this coverage continues until the busses are moved on July 18th.
