The agency's virtual gingerbread-house booking service helps real families find shelter

DURHAM, N.C. — Agencies have a history of creative holiday work, and this year agency McKinney has created a campaign for good on a website called Gingerbread BNB.

Visitors to the website gingerbreadbnb.com can book a virtual gingerbread home: a modern prarie-style home; a rustic cabin; or a kitschy, cozy camper. A McKinney representative said the agency is proud of the dead simple UX (user experience) that makes the site easy to use.

By "booking" a gingerbread house for $5, $10, $20, visitors help a real family in New York get a warm place to stay via the Robin Hood organization. Of course, you get what you pay for and the $5 camper comes with only "half candy bathroom (will not fit all gingerpeople)."
