No Kid Hungry Live with Busy Philipps

Finalist in Poverty & Hunger, Nonprofit

Entered in Live Streaming

About this entry

Since 2008, No Kid Hungry has raised over $80M in funds through campaigns like Dine for No Kid Hungry by uniting the restaurant industry around the goal of ending childhood hunger in America.  For the past two years, No Kid Hungry carried out a roadshow with physical events across the country to kick off the campaign. In 2019, No Kid Hungry challenged themselves to reimagine the approach to lift the geographical constraints of physical events.  To kick off this new direction, No Kid Hungry hosted and streamed a live variety show with special celebrity guests entitled No Kid Hungry LIVE with Busy Philipps! Their main goal was widening their reach to increase consumer awareness of Dine for No Kid Hungry month-long fundraising and the restaurant partners participating. Whether ordering meals for delivery or dining at a No Kid Hungry partner restaurant, guests were able to round up their checks or donate in exchange for money-saving rewards.

Additional goals included: 

Why does this entry deserve to win?

In 2019, 111+ million Americans live streamed videos thanks to accessible live stream technology by platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and others. No Kid Hungry wanted to meet people where they are – their smartphones, desktops and tablets – and show up in this space in a fun yet meaningful way. In re-imagining the approach for Dine for No Kid Hungry, No Kid Hungry teamed up with Telescope Inc. to produce and power their large scale live stream event in order to create a far-reaching moment without geographical constraints to tell their story and compel people to dine at partner restaurants in support of ending childhood hunger.

We created a national moment complete with celebrity star power to kick off the campaign - No Kid Hungry Live with Busy Philipps, a live streamed variety show that aired on September 4, 2019. Co-hosted by award-winning chef and No Kid Hungry advocate Curtis Stone and featuring 12 other celebrities including Angela Kinsey, Ike Barinholtz, chef Brooke Williamson and more. It streamed simultaneously for nearly 2 hours to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, incorporating live feed integration to the innovation kitchens and headquarters of 11 partner restaurants across the country (Grub Hub, Arby’s, Shake Shack, QDOBA, Noodles World Kitchen) where they unveiled one-of-a-kind sweepstakes prizes that viewers could enter to win by visiting the campaign page. The sweepstakes ran from September 4 - 30, enabling No Kid Hungry to drive traffic to the campaign webpage all month long. Lucky winners won prizes including a $5,000 gift card from Grub Hub and a five-course dinner from Noodles & Company. To further viewer engagement, we also integrated other partners through live interactive polls where viewers voted in real-time within the comments section on fun questions throughout the stream.

Busy and Curtis led outrageously funny moments and games, featured surprise guests, and showcased heroes leading the fight against childhood hunger all with the goal of compelling our target audience to tune in – and Dine for No Kid Hungry. Furthermore, the campaign landing page prominently featured an interactive map in which users could find participating restaurant locations near them.

Key to our success involved:
