Founded back in 1985 as a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical company Imperial Chemical industries, an annual Breast Cancer Awareness month traditionally celebrated in October not only in the U.S. but merely across the globe, in its 29th year has become for businesses a yet another newsworthy marketing and PR opportunity, such as Super Bowl or Olympics.
M&C Saatchi has developed an emotional campaign for Transport for London, designed to make people be more tolerant and not let their emotions out on the road.
