Magen David Adom E-cards Launch

To coincide with the 90th anniversary celebrations of Magen David Adom UK, we are delighted to have worked with Base8 to launch an e-cards page for Magen David Adom UK.

The new service allows users to select from a wide range of e-cards including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and simple thank-you messages but also includes special occasion cards for events such as Bar / Bat Mitzvah.

Check them out here.

‘Bring The Colour’ to the UCLH Emergency Department

The challenge from UCLH Charity was to create a brand and campaign that would motivate a fundraising audience whilst at the same time speak to the cause – the development of the Emergency Department at UCLH. ‘Bring the Colour’ is all about improving an intimidating and scary environment, for those who need to use it at a potentially intimidating and scary time. Let’s hope it’s a success.

#YellowCandle campaign trending number 1 on Twitter

The Community unites on Yom HaShoah, lighting Yellow Candles to remember and honour those who perished in the Holocaust.

Every year, Maccabi GB distributes yellow memorial candles across the Jewish community and beyond in advance of Yom HaShoah. Each Yellow Candle comes with an individual information card, including the name, hometown, as well as place of death and age of a Jewish person who perished during the Holocaust.

On the night, #Yellow Candle trended first on Twitter, with people from around the world posting photos of their lit Yellow Candle on social media.

Meet The Survivors

A few months ago it became clear that our client, March of the Living UK, would not be able to take Holocaust survivors or participants to Poland as part of its annual March.

The March itself usually takes place on Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and covers the 3km from the gates of Auschwitz to the gas chambers at Birkenau.

We worked with MOTL on an idea that bought the March much closer to home. 5 survivors and 5 well-known personalities in a Covid-friendly environment.
Walking, talking and most importantly witnessing. (As Elie Wiesel said, “Whoever listens to a witness, becomes a witness”)

Check out what happened when Eyal Booker met Mala Tribich, Karren Brady met Agnes Kaposi, Matt Lucas met Harry Olmer, Ronnie O’Sullivan met Eve Kugler and Robert Peston met Lily Ebert.

The Community Security Trust’s campaign has seen the largest fundraising total by a Jewish charity during the pandemic.
Every donation was doubled by supporters of the charity which works to protect British Jews from antisemitism and terror.
The initiative was backed by high profile celebrities and public figures, including David Baddiel, Eamon Holmes and TracyAnn Oberman.

After 15 years in Pratt Mews, it feels like the end of an era. But the start of a new one…
