Salesian Missions Launches First-ever National Awareness Campaign
Campaign commercials were filmed on location at the Salesian Missions New Rochelle, NY, headquarters in April 2009, and will run for five weeks beginning June 15. The commercials, already available on the campaign website and YouTube, can be viewed on such stations as A&E, CNN, Discovery and the Travel Channel as well as other national cable stations. The campaign commercials invites viewers to go to the campaign website to answer the question, "What's your mission?"
By using real people to ask the audience "What's your mission?" the call to action is strong and sincere. To answer the call to action, the audience is given the campaign website address: FindYourMission.org. The new campaign website allows site visitors to find their missions through an interactive tool that highlights the work Salesian Missions does in more than 130 countries around the world.
The website reads: "No matter what issue or country around the world tugs at your heart, Salesian Missions supports what you care about most."
To answer the question "What's your mission?" go to FindYourMission.org today.
