Feed the Children Ad

Advertisements by non-profit organizations must accomplish several objectives simultaneously: Inform the public, trigger audience emotions, appeal to audience altruism, and evoke the desired call to action response.

Other images portray children who are not as universal in appearance. Differences can be attributed to cultural and ethnic representation, or simply a context or appearance that fully expressed a dire situation, such as a child who is dirty or is wearing torn clothing -- or both.
