Hand-making Father’s Day super with Supercheap Auto

In an all-terrain effort by our trans-Tasman team, Aruga and BonBon put the pedal to the metal in facilitating Supercheap Auto’s inaugural Father’s Day Crafternoon across more than 330 stores in Australia and Aotearoa.

To help kids combine the thoughtfulness of a homemade gift with the practicality of a Supercheap Auto gift card, Aruga executed a three-pillared approach to bring the Crafternoon to life, which included the creation and management of 330 crafting kits, a proactive media relations strategy, and an army of brand-aligned influencers to create buzz through organic gifting.
