A Taste of Home

60k messages of support and 540 care packages were sent to our Aussie athletes in Rio

The Challenge

Raw Ideas was asked by BEcause Australia to help deliver ‘A Taste of Home’ to the Australian Olympic Team heading to Rio to compete in the 2016 Games. Leveraging the coverage of the Woolworths stores across Australia enabled true home town support in the lead up to the Games.

Building an engaging application that would invite everybody across Australia, in all communities, to look through athletes’ bios, choose a tasty treat to send them from home, offer some encouraging words and then take a picture to share in the athletes’ journey to the Olympics.


Our Solution

We deployed the Taste of Home iOS app via a virtual network to 380 iPads placed in Woolworths stores around the nation, driving branded user generated content and excitement in the lead up to the games.

Customised reporting provided the ability to monitor the nationwide activation easily and ensure maximum results.

Once the message and image passed through moderation, the image was emailed via Click2Share to promote social sharing.


The Results

  • The custom-built iOS app that was the backbone of a interactive campaign, providing user generated content for social, messages of support for the athletes and engagement across all of Australia  
  • Two-way engagement with an additional website built so athletes could record and send messages directly back to the fans
  • Flawless deployment nationwide across 380 stores
