From the PR rather than advertising side, the local Humane Society where I live (Winnipeg, Canada), had Labradoodle puppies available for adoption. The E.D. sent a letter to the Prime Minister's office suggesting Canada give one of the puppies to the new President during his upcoming visit. The E.D. suggested that this would be a great way for the President to avoid any hard feelings for picking one U.S. animal shelter over another--he would be accepting a state gift. This story got great coverage locally and nationally. I thought it was brilliant. Great examples.
