As consumers continue to cope with the negative impacts of COVID-19, it's our responsibility as brands, content creators and influencers to put their needs above all else and create engaging and reactive content to help keep people at home, whilst also assisting in ensuring the publics mental health is kept at an all time high.

This campaign resulted in 297 Videos with a collective 5.6million video views with hundreds and thousands of engagements.
