The use of child soldiers is common in many countries. Our client wanted to generate awareness of this issue and collect donations. When young German men reach adulthood, they receive a letter calling them up for service in the army. We sent authentic-looking military draft notices to families with young children (8 to 14 years). The children are ordered to perform military service, including taking part in suicide missions and rapes.Our message: ‘Unthinkable in Germany. Reality in other countries. Help us stop the use of child soldiers – with your donation’.
