American Red Cross & BBDO New York for Sandy

Agency supplies people with kit to document their story of recovery

American Red Cross & BBDO New York for Sandy

 

Superstorm Sandy helped highlight how the American Red Cross provides disaster relief to people in need.
 
But the Red Cross and its army of volunteers are actually, quietly, active every day, doing much much more than just disaster relief:  from saving lives through blood donations, to teaching CPR skills, comforting families living through house fires or floods, and bringing military families back together when they need it most.  And they’ve been doing this for more than 130 years.
 
 
And who better to tell this story than the families themselves – people whom the Red Cross has helped, and who passionately want to give back.
 
 
Which is exactly what the American Red Cross “Stories Project” is all about.
 
BBDO New York sent people a simple kit with a camera, and some tips for how best to depict their story (see photo of kit attached).  In fact, in the true spirit of giving, the cameras were provided at cost by Sony; and shipping services were donated by FedEx.
 
What BBDO New York found was extraordinary:  people bravely opened their hearts, sharing stories that are inspiring, tragic, uplifting and unbelievable…more than two dozen stories to date and counting, from 23 states, over 250 hours of filming and a year in the making.  With no director.  And no script. 
 
You have to see it to believe it.
