Evening Post: Apple Core

For some, the fast goes beyond Ramadan. You can't feed a hundred thousand children but you can help feed one. Make this Ramadan even more meaningful by reaching out to those in need.

The last ten days of Ramadan signify the most holy period. This ad was done to remind people to carry on the spirit of Ramadan even after the holy month; to continue to give to the needy and share with the poor.

True. A nice campaign for the UN WFP from Publicis that ran globally a while back.

Been done. And the originals are so nice too. The copy is unispiring and long, though visually it just might sail through. No, doesn't do it for me. Sorry.

But you CAN help feed one? Is there a word missing?

...Something doesn't seems right. The copy's ruined it.
