  • Ribeiro

Year after year, for the Women’s Day and the Mother’s Day or for any other special day, brands use to promote their products. They give the consumers the possibility to buy it for “mom” or for “the woman of the house”.But, does anybody thought that those gifts like hoovers, blenders, washing machines or irons in fact it’s only an element to work at home and not really a gift?That’s why Publicis Buenos Aires generated #RegalaleUnRegalo, a Minicuotas Ribeiro’s campaign. The prices for domestic appliances that mean work for the women at home were at unachievable costs, leaving aside the sales after a particular message: an iron or a hoover are not and never should have been a gift option.Across the Women’s Day campaign, Minicuotas Ribeiro encourages to delight women, defending their role and giving real gifts to them. Ribeiro’s account director at publicis is Paula Katz.
