Adot.com sheds light on homelessness

To raise awareness of the 93,000 homeless people all over the UK, Ogilvy & Mather Japan created for non-profit organization, Adot.com an integrated social campaign on homelessness.

The campaign was based on the insight that homeless people are becoming invisible on the streets of the UK. The campaign showcased portraits of the homeless wrapped in Christmas lights.

Speaking on the campaign, Adot.com spokesperson said, “We aim to inspire people to change their perspectives on what they see and do. We ask people to take a moment to really look closer at everything and everyone in the world around us.”

The campaign will be running in cinemas, TV, print, poster and social media.

Ajab Samrai, Chief Creative Officer of Ogilvy & Mather Japan said, “With such potent and beautifully disturbing images, this Christmas it will be harder than ever to look away from homelessness.”

The campaign will also be supported on social media by several personalities like, Jon Snow, Barbara Windsor, Mitch Winehouse, Caprice, Russell Brand, and many others, with the campaign’s hashtag – #shedlight.
