PENNY Zipfelmann

A clever response to online hate and widespread market vandalism for the release of a religion-neutral Christmas figure. PENNY knew what was coming when they redesigned the packaging for the Zipfelmann in pride colors.

The trick was PENNY donated 1€ to anti-hate organizations for every negative or hate comment. After a few days, PENNY released the design and announced a donation to from community – thanking the haters for helping to give 10,000€ on their behalf.

A story of a Facebook post that triggered a social media uproar, vandalism in stores and a lot of hate for a small little chocolate figure.
