"What's happening?" some people ask after shopping in "their neighborhood supermarket" on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. Confetti. A buzzer. And a drag queen with green hair, glittery boots and a feather boa: customers are surprised after leaving by none other than Olivia Jones – with the #sehrokay buzzer (very okay) and the request: "Show me your bill!"
Compared to other age groups, young people are donating less and less. The new Hamburg-based company aidFIVE wants to solve this problem. As the first purely digital social lottery, we realized the first campaigns together with the newcomer in February and March 2022 under the title "very okay". The cross media campaign name also provided the hashtag at the same time: #sehrokay. In the background, the Stiftung Deutsches Hilfswerk and, as a further partner, the Deutsche Fernsehlotterie supported the implementation. The formats of the #sehrokay campaign include TV spots, which we produced with Studio Seidel, selected podcast placements and accompanying moving images on platforms such as Instagram and TikTok. We implemented the social web campaign in collaboration with various creators.
The highlight for the cross-media campaign's finale: an Instagram reel. Played out via @we_are_aidfive including accompanying videos on TikTok (@aidfive.org). The idea behind the reel: Drag queen Olivia Jones surprises people in "her neighborhood" after shopping with the "very okay" buzzer and a lot of organic confetti: The rolled-out green carpet in front of the supermarket was the stage for Olivia Jones and at the same time the invitation to the young participants to buy a lottery ticket worth five euros directly at Olivia's side and then upload their own bill worth up to 5,000 euros. In this way, they do good and play along on site and in the digital world. Whether or not the purchase value is recovered becomes clear immediately after the upload - in any case, each ticket supports selected social projects.
The principle of helping at aidFIVE is simply explained:
1. register on aidfive.org
2. upload an invoice
3. buy a lottery ticket for five Euros
4. support social projects
5. secure the chance to win back the purchase value
This gives all participants the chance to win back the invoice amount they have submitted. At the same time they support social projects. Any kind of invoice up to an amount of 5,000 euros can be submitted: the new sneakers, the electricity bill or the weekly shopping. The bulk of the ticket amount goes to start-up funding for social projects throughout Germany that sustainably improve the lives of children and young people as well as people in need. You can apply for this funding here . The projects are selected with the participation of all participants, who must be at least 18 years old.
aidFIVE is the first purely digital social lottery in Germany. Since August 2021, denkwerk has been responsible for brand development and the campaign, eg. the cross-media campaign with Olivia Jones. The social lottery aidFIVE is an official partner of the Deutsche Fernsehlotterie and, like the latter, a subsidiary of the Stiftung Deutsches Hilfswerk. aidFIVE turns invoices into tickets with good chances of winning. Every receipt from one cent to 5,000 euros that is photographed or scanned and then uploaded becomes a raffle ticket with which you can win back the value of your purchase. You find out immediately whether you have won. Participants play for the value of any purchase of up to 5,000 euros and can win it back with a little luck. The five-euro stake, which is always the same, is used to support innovative social projects throughout Germany. In this way, aidFIVE wants to enable younger people in particular to do good in their everyday lives. The brand and the concept around aidFIVE emerged from the brand story format for the holistic development of a brand strategy.
