Notes for Judging: Every year, 7.7 million people worldwide are diagnosed with dementia. Early detection is important, but the first symptoms are often dismissed as typical signs of aging.
EDEKA launched a unique Easter campaign across Germany: Since mixing up dates is an early sign of Alzheimer's, EDEKA mixed up the holidays. So, Christmas was celebrated on 24 March – in the middle of Easter time. While everyone else was getting in the mood for Easter, there were Christmas decorations in 11,000 EDEKA stores, Christmas roast recipes on social media and a typically emotional Christmas commercial on TV.
The confusion among the public and the press created the attention EDEKA needed for a new product launch available in all EDEKA stores: the Christmas Bunny. A unique blend of Santa and the Easter Bunny, which became a symbol for early detection of Alzheimer's disease. Every purchased chocolate figure supported the Alzheimer Forschung Initiative e.V. and over €250,000 in donations were generated.
