Building Movements NOT Brands

Bup2p-2ilding brands is dead.  Building movements is what it’s all about today.  Bringing people together around “their authentic passion” is what inspires a movement.  So does impact and change.  The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is extraordinarily grateful to the 250,000+ passionate donors who support our movement – To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime.  The PMCF are fortunate to have developed 4 of the top 30 peer-to-peer fundraising movements in Canada.  The link to the article is below.  The #1 peer-to-peer fundraising in Canada is the Ride to Conquer Cancer which we share with B.C., Alberta and Quebec.  It takes Passion Capital to build a movement and even more passion to sustain it over many years.  OneWalk to Conquer Cancer is going into its 15th year and the Ride just celebrated its 10th year with a record $20.5 million raised.  Brands are old news and old thinking.  Movements which can be sustained and built over years is the new model.  Thanks to our army of donors and volunteers and supporters.  The Princess Margaret would not be one of the world’s top 5 cancer research centres without your support!

    In business, in politics, in not-for-profits, brands are dead. Movements have replaced or will replace old school brands. Great example is the NFL (brand in decline) and E-Sports (growing movement).
    The NFL brand is in long term decline while E-Sports are a growing movement. Brands are dying and being replaced by movements or causes driven by authentic passion and engagement.
