Bail Out

The prisoners for this year’s UnLtd Adland Bail Out has been revealed, featuring GroupM’s Vanessa Hunt, Wavemaker’s Peter Vogel and Starcom’s Stuart Jaffray.

The event is hosted across Sydney and Melbourne by UnLtd and Whitelion and aims to raise funds to help disadvantaged youth.

The inmates, which this year grew to 150 compared to last year’s 80, will spend a night in prison, cut off from the outside world. In order to be released the next day, each participant must raise $1,000 as their ‘bail’.

While in the prisons, inmates will be exposed to the realities of children facing abuse, neglect, drug addiction and poverty.

“This event is incredibly powerful because it takes most of us to a place that we have never been, where we get to understand and experience what life is like for kids who have been locked up,” UnLtd CEO Chris Freel says.

“Whitelion and UnLtd firmly believe in rehabilitation. If we can’t rehabilitate children, then who can we help? The money and awareness raised from this event will ensure that there is hope for many young people and not a life behind bars.”

Last year the event raise more than $160,000 for Whitelion, which went towards funding critical outreach program to assist some of the most at-risk young people.

GroupM digital strategy and investment officer Venessa Hunt, who is returning to Bail Out for a second time, says the event was one of the most impactful events she’s been a part of.

“It highlighted to me one of the biggest challenges our society faces today,” Hunt says.

“Youth being at risk is not an isolated problem, it’s a problem that affects everyone and is everyone’s responsibility to address. This year I wanted to go back behind bars to show my support for this incredible event.

Ogilvy is set to launch an awareness campaign for Whitelion later this year.
