It is good...but speculate with Haiti to win Cannes it's not so great.
even if they did donate, i don't believe they deserve a price. But a mention would be nice. They deserve that for sure

Agree. If they enter this into any award show, then it's a lie.

common read the line again it says they dedicated the money which was to be used for submitting more entries to Haiti earthquake affected people. If there are more entries it means more chance to win instead they submitting just 1 entry. they hav actually helped poor people instead of increasing their chance to win this does deserve to get nominated.

Well I think they should enter this because they're saying that they haven't invested in a better idea, which they would have, but instead used that money for better use. But by mentioning their good deed they're beating the purpose, but then again if they don't mention this fact, then their ad becomes weak. It's a double-edged sword, I tell you.

"This year we submitted only this idea" - so they'are saying that they did submit, and it ONLY this idea, so, any conversation about will they enter any festival is unnecessary

Well, why don't they send something good enough to cannes instead of this crap?

Agree with Tubito: "...but speculate with Haiti to win Cannes it's not so great."

There's been a hell of an earthquake and these guys are seeking awards, using it... Very humane.

Its very bad taste to say that you donated to something, and even more if you are trying to get some award for it.

Just donate and keep to yourself, the world dont need your words, it needs your help.

Very bad ad...

Submitting to Cannes costs money. Having a good idea costs nothing. You are a liar and you are not creative. Anything else you want to say about yourself? Oh, yeah, you want: "Sorry Cannes Lions!" - so you are a pathetic egoist as well. Good self-promo I would say.
