CASE STUDY

  • Mike's TIE story in 2 minutes

  • Mike's awareness film for Lar Rejane Marques

  • As part of his fundraising efforts, Mike jumped off a plane to raise funds for his campaign

  • Mike really (!) enjoyed his time working with Lar

  • Mike and the children saying THANK YOU for everyone who donated

  • At the end of the campaign, Mike organized a gala dinner to attract more sponsors to Lar

When Mike Alhadeff applied to go on TIE, he wanted to shake things up a bit. See new places, meet new people, face new challenges. And, of course, he wanted to make a difference. He just didn’t know that he would be such an inspiration for everyone involved in the placement.

Mike arrived in Recife in February 2015 with one challenge: to raise the profile of a charity called Lar Rejane Marques and attract more sponsors to support their cause. Lar Rejane Marques serves as a home for children with disabilities who have been abandoned or abused by their family. And their mission is to help develop these children, while rehabilitating their families or finding them a new one.

On the first day of the project, so many stories were shared and Mike understood this wasn’t a simple task. With his team of students from the experimental agency Inata, he started what would be a month to be remembered.

If you want to be inspired by Mike’s incredible story, grab a cup of tea and have a read of his case study. You’ll be glad you did.
