The best of non-profit advertising and marketing for social causes Posted by Arbie Baguios | 19-04-2014 18:06 | Category: Human rights On Mother’s Day weekend, Amnesty International reminded thousands of commuters on their way to see families and loved ones that, for some people, there is simply no going home. As part of their “Help Get Them Home” campaign, the international human rights organisation took over the departure boards of Waterloo station in London on 29-30 March 2014. In place of arrivals and departures, the giant screens displayed the names of people who were arrested for peacefully expressing their views.

Unfortunately, because there is little public knowledge about egg donation, and because it is illegal to pay for eggs in Canada, it is often difficult for a woman to find a donor. On occasion, a woman will have a close friend or relative who is an appropriate candidate, but if this is not the case, often the intended parents are forced to search for an altruistic donor through various media such as Craigslist or local newspapers. Obviously this is not ideal, and many couples are not comfortable with this option. There is also growing evidence that most egg donors are willing to have their identity disclosed to indented parents and their offspring.
