Snapchat, an innovative photo messaging application popular among millennials today, is evolving beyond an app you can use to send a 5 second silly selfie to a friend. Snapchat is now finding its socially responsible voice by using the platform to raise awareness on important global issues, while also creating an advertising model of sponsored stories for their brand partners.

UNICEF and Snapchat have partnered to launch a campaign on the Boko Haram crisis in Nigeria, #bringbackourchildhood, during which Islamic militants abducted more than 200 schoolgirls a year ago. The campaign collaborated with Snapchat artists to help recreate drawings by the affected children in Nigeria in Snapchat “art,” with the ultimate goal of conveying their horrific situation and raising awareness in a relatable and direct way. The campaign encourages snapchat users to send @unicef snaps depicting what they would miss if they were forced to flee their homes.

By diving into the BAV database, we see that in 2014 Snapchat’s strength lies in Energized Differentiation, while Unicef can help Snapchat boost its Relevance, Esteem and Knowledge among all adults. Juxtaposing the two brand personalities, reveals that Snapchat can bring a Fun and Trendy essence to Unicef, while Unicef can offer approachability. Simultaneous to Unicef trying to reach a younger audience, Snapchat is capitalizing on its ad model and is likely to gain Brand Stature through its latest strategic—and humanitarian-- campaign.
