This PSA from Kirshenbaum Bond Senecal + Partners (kbs+) for our Adoption from Foster Care campaign with the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and AdoptUSKids shows “Danger Dad” fixing a basketball hoop and capturing prairie dogs to illustrate that you don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. Today, more than 33,000 teenagers await adoption from the U.S. foster care system and nearly 50% (14,000) are between the ages of 14 and 16. Since the launch of the campaign in 2004, more than 15,000 children have been placed with a permanent family.


Body language can tell you all sorts of things, including that someone’s having a stroke. This powerful PSA produced by Grey New York for our stroke awareness campaign, on behalf of the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, teaches the acronym F.A.S.T. for recognizing and responding to the sudden signs of stroke. F.A.S.T. stands for Face drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty and Time to call 9-1-1.

    Love them both! But I think the stroke info is more of a “life and death” PSA, and probably should win. But keep doing them all : )
