One such major campaign conducted during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016 was Plan’s and Nickelodeon International’s "Together for Good" global initiative which provided a platform to inspire its audiences to get involved in their communities. This campaign included over $13m of media donated to Plan which was broadcast across multiple platforms in 150 countries and territories. The revenue and expense amounts related to this donation are reported as part of “Other contributions” revenue and “Development Education and Advocacy” expense in the Condensed Statement of Activities in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
