London, December 2010— This Christmas, the NSPCC is once again running a nationwide seasonal campaign that will send the child (or big kid!) you know a ‘Letter from Santa’.

Leading mobile specialist agency, Incentivated, will provide mobile marketing support for the campaign. Activity will include mobile banner adverts to promote the campaign on the mobile internet and the creation of a mobile microsite so Letters can be ordered easily from internet enabled phones.

For a suggested donation of £5, each letter is personalised with the child’s name and age, printed on colourful paper and sent via ‘Rudolf Mail’. Once the order is completed, the microsite allows Gift Aid authorisation, the site to be forwarded to a friend and other NSPCC Christmas Wishes to be viewed.

Monika Antczak, Digital Marketing Specialist at the NSPCC said: “Incentivated is helping the NSPCC to use the power and immediacy of mobile to enable people to respond to our campaign messages and make a donation quickly and simply.

Jason Cross, Marketing Director for Incentivated, commented: “This is a great promotion from NSPCC. The Letter from Santa is such an engaging way of raising funds for this important charity during the Christmas period. We are delighted to be able to help by bringing mobile solutions into the campaign. Increasingly, mobile is the ‘tool of immediacy’ chosen for ‘point of sale’ research and response by more and more people – especially when reacting to events and interacting with charity appeals.”

About NSPCC

The NSPCC is the UK's leading children's charity specialising in child protection and the prevention of cruelty to children. The NSPCC's vision is to end cruelty to children. The NSPCC runs projects and services across the United Kingdom and Channel Islands, including ChildLine, the UK's free, confidential 24-hour helpline for children and young people. www.nspcc.org.uk

ChildLine is the UK's free, confidential 24-hour helpline for children and young people. Trained volunteer counsellors comfort, advise and protect children and young people. In February 2006, ChildLine formally joined with the NSPCC in a move that will ensure even stronger services and a more influential voice for children and young people. The ChildLine service, now one of the NSPCC's listening services, still has the same instantly recognisable telephone number - 0800 1111 - and children and young people can still call avid24 hours a day and receive the same crucial service.
