Weber Advertising & Marketing decided to celebrate reaching 50,000 jobs by giving away the 50,000th one for free. Staffer Chris Heiner covertly came up with a plan to hijack Weber's automated job jacket system, effectively holding slot number 50,000 for a special occasion of his choosing. That special occasion came when Karns Foods, a Weber client for 18 years, requested material for its Karns Cares Food Bag campaign, a promotion that encouraged customers to purchase $5 Karns Cares food bags, with Karns matching every $5 purchase (up to $20,000 or 4,000 additional bags) and then donating all food to local food banks. The promotion raised $86,000 worth of food delivered to local food banks.
