Well, besides this tampon ad. July was an unusually good month for good advertising.

2. FXB International (France).

Via ibelieveinadv.com

FXB is a nonprofit that fights poverty and AIDS for children worldwide.

A clever and easy-to-get way to show how little you need to do to help.

Ad agency: Publicis Conseil, Paris.

3. Schweppes Limón Dry (Spain)

I generally hate celeb endorsement campaigns, because they are usually lazily thought-out, wholly unentertaining commercials. But the choice of Iggy Pop here, for this particular product, is perfect. Bravo, China (the responsible Madrid ad agency). Third ad featuring a full upper body shot here.

6. Parkinson's UK.

Via theinspirationroom.com

A risky print campaign by London's Assembly Network, but if you know someone who has (or had) Parkinson's, it hits you both intellectually and emotionally. I hope it's doing some good. Second ad below. See all five ads from the campaign here.

8. Pacific Blue Cross (Canada).

Via adsoftheworld.com

Pacific Blue Cross rubs it into America's face .5 kilometers from the border with this clever billboard that mimics a highway sign that reminds homefolk to get travel insurance before heading to the land of far from free health insurance.

Ad agency: Wasserman + Partners, Vancouver.
