Donít Almost Give. Give.
This simple line challenges us to examine where we stand when it comes to helping others. It asks us translate our compassion into action. That is the goal of the Generous Nation campaign.
This campaign would not have been possible without the dedication and tireless commitment of some great friends of the Ad Council.
Special thanks to Phil Dusenberry, former Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, BBDO, North America; Ted Sann, Former Vice Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, BBDO North America and Charlie Miesmer, Vice Chairman, Executive Creative Director BBDO NY for creating and producing this poignant and compelling campaign pro bono. Many thanks to Matt Freeman and the entire Tribal Dallas team for designing, developing and producing this web site and to MacKenzie Cutler for donated all time and talent to edit the PSAs.
