The ‘RIGHT TO LIFE’ Campaign

Our Clients Challenge

In March 2022, the country faced a severe crisis as blood stock levels reached a critical low. The South African National Blood Services (SANBS) set an ambitious goal – to collect 7000 units of blood over the Human Rights’ Day weekend, from Friday, March 19 to Monday, March 21. The challenge was clear – encouraging the nation to come forward and donate blood to replenish the dangerously depleted blood bank stock.

Our Solution
The Human Rights Day Collections Boost – Right to Life Campaign

To tackle this daunting challenge, we  devised a creative campaign strategy that was not only compelling but emotionally charged. We recognized the power of history in motivating people and decided to turn to the country’s historic superheroes for inspiration. These iconic figures had made significant contributions to society during their lifetimes, and we believed they could once again move the nation to action, this time in the form of life-saving blood donations.

Our creative strategy aimed to connect the dots between these hero personas and the ordinary citizens.

We wanted the public to see that by donating blood, they too could be heroes, contributing to a greater good, just as our hero personas had done in their lives.

The primary channel for our campaign was social media. Leveraging the wide reach and influence of platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, we deployed the Right to Life’ campaign with the hashtag #righttolife. This campaign tagline succinctly captured the essence of our mission – to protect and preserve lives through the act of blood donation.
