The Martin Agency lent its hand to The American Cancer Society to revamp its image and reach modern women ages 35-64. Partnering with Federated Media, they recruited influential female bloggers to tell their personal cancer-related stories. By doing this, 700 comments were generated on seven bloggers' sites. Heartfelt stories of survival and compassion were told, and in turn modernized the 100 year-old organization, while linking to The American Cancer Society's microsite, morebirthdays.com. This not only helped ACS's image, but also did good for others.
