Ad Nut has been a fan of Publicis Singapore's 'Touch of care' work for Vicks from the jump, and a new expansion of the campaign to South Africa proves to be another worthy addition to the ouevre.
The film above tells the story of orphaned boy named Lizo Tom, who grew up, lost his own son to a tragedy, and then went on to open a creche—named in honour of his son—which now cares for 47 children in Mamelodi, Pretoria. Tom himself appears toward the end.
The campaign also has the involvement of rugby player Siya Kolisi, captain of the South Africa national team, who has two kids of his own and also took in two siblings when their mother passed away.
Whether it’s my family on the field or at home, I know firsthand how a small #TouchofCare has the power to make a massive difference. That’s why I’ve partnered with @Vicks_ZA who are celebrating and fostering care in communities across the globe. #VicksPaidPartner pic.twitter.com/UOWrC4sNMQ— Siya Kolisi (@SiyaKolisi_Bear) March 14, 2020
Not every child is born into a loving family that offers unconditional support and love that nurtures and develops their true potential. But with a #TouchofCare they can rise above their circumstances to reach their full potential. #VicksPaidPartner https://t.co/b9ocdYciKS— Siya Kolisi (@SiyaKolisi_Bear) March 16, 2020
