NHS Blood & Transplant
Missing Type

We highlighted the need for new blood donors by removing As, Os and Bs from famous landmarks and logos.

 

Challenge

Over the past decade, there has been a massive decline in blood donation. New donors were urgently needed to protect the blood required for the two million annual blood transfusions in England.

Idea

A campaign aiming to spark conversation and initiate behaviour change rather than simply raise awareness. Taking the As, Os and Bs from names, places and brands that we interact with daily -creating a visible impact nationwide.

Results

  • Thousands of new donors.
  • Huge increase in blood.co.uk traffic
  • Coverage on every TV news show.
  • Trended on Twitter.
  • 1,000+ brands dropped their As, Os & Bs.
