This campaign was conceived and launched in Canada by Ogilvy Canada working alongside Ogilvy UK, who then rolled it out globally.

In this campaign, we celebrated healthcare workers on the front line of the battle against COVID-19 and donated millions of dollars in badly-needed supplies. We launched in Canada and then adapted it globally to feature local healthcare workers in 15 countries. It has over 2+ BILLION earned PR impressions, smashed all Unilever benchmarks for engagement, and achieved 99% positive sentiment on social.
