    –This is a collection of brilliant,
    serious advertisements. Some of them are a little far fetched but if
    that is what it takes to get their message across then it may be
    necessary. I always find it interesting to see what none profit
    companies come up with when creating advertisements and often they
    are some of the most inspirational ads out there. Thanks for sharing.
