Instagram as a beacon of 'Hope through the night'

THE WORK: 'Hope through the night' for Samaritans of Singapore by TBWA Singapore.

It's Suicide Prevention Week, and while Ad Nut believes every week should be suicide-prevention week, the effort to highlight the need for help and understanding is still appreciated. This social-media campaign by TBWA Singapore for Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) encourages people to build a "repository of hope" under the hashtag #HopeThroughTheNight on Instagram. The campaign specifically targets the ‘darkest hours’ of midnight to 3 am.

SOS has brands such as Foodpanda, Dopa Dopa Creamery, Bettr Barista and Sanity Coffee
involved in the campaign as well.

The organisation reminds us that suicide remains the leading cause of death people between 10 and 29, and says it saw a 56% increase in people in this age group writing in for help over its last fiscal year.
