Campus Media is proud to announce National Students of AMF (Ailing Mothers, Fathers, or Loved Ones) as the winner of its 2009-2010 PSA competition. Every year Campus Media selects one organization that has an important cause or message to share with students. That organization’s ad will then be placed in some of the nation’s top college newspapers free of charge. This year Campus Media joined forces with TheCampusBuzz.com, a national college newsfeed service, to stream the winner’s message to its 3,000 subscribers. California-based creative agency, Crate, will be producing the creative platform and print ad series for the National Students of AMF’s first PSA advertising campaign.
“The college newspaper PSA program is growing every year and our strategic partners feel compelled to share their services,” said Jason Bakker, Director of Marketing at Campus Media Group. “These guys at AMF are great people and are providing a service to college students that is really remarkable.”
“The Campus Media PSA Program will help us tremendously in reaching our goal,” said David Fajgenbaum, Co-founder and Executive Director of Students of AMF. “What an incredible way to raise awareness about our cause! On top of that, we are honored to have the help and support of Crate and The Campus Buzz.”
“We’re excited to create an engaging PSA advertising campaign for this great organization” said Jeff Roach, Partner at Crate. “Our hope is that this campaign gets students talking about the effects of grief in the student lifestyle and builds awareness in the issue and how starting a National Students of AMF chapter in their school can make a huge difference.”
National Students of AMF is dedicated to supporting college students coping with the illness or death of a loved one.
