GRAACC: Snoopy, Hello Kitty and Garfield Shave Their Heads to Support Cancer Awareness Month in Brazil
Ogilvy, Brazil have worked together with GRAACC, Brazilian children’s cancer hospital for several years. Back in 2010 the campaign "Donate Your Website" won a Silver Cannes Lions and now this moving campaign have been created to honor National Childhood Cancer Day. - I guess it could also win a prize or two at this year’s Cannes Lions in June..
The idea: Famous cartoons from all over the world have gone bald and thereby sends out the message that a child with cancer deserves to be treated just like any other child.
Result: Being bald simply became less taboo and unfamiliar among kids! - Brilliant work and definitely worth sharing..
Check out more on the campaign website, baldcartoons.com, where visitors can pledge their support.

Volkswagen: Kombi and The Last Wishes - Story Telling of Exceptional Quality
The following documentary about the The VW Type 2 or VW Bus T1 (Kombi) took six months in the making. Guess, brilliant content about brand and product heritage and history takes time, but it sure is worth it.
I have seen great separate pieces of content in regard to the decision to phase the model out at VW, but this film from Brazil, (home country to the factory, that has been producing the vehicle in 56 years) has everything.
Credits goes to the creative agency AlmapBBDO Brazil, who has manage to create a film with nostalgia, fun facts, history and heritage with a tone of voice and brand personality that seems to natural - yet without going over the top with life changing or life saving stories.
The VW model have had many different purposes and drivers during the last 56 years and that is just exactly what’s captured so well in this film.
