Case Study
The Good To Share campaign, an unbranded campaign for MedImmune, educated parents and children about the importance of vaccination during the height of one of the most infamous flu seasons on record.  Centered around GoodToShare.com and TV properties, it is based on children's willingness to share their favorite things such as hugs, ice cream and toys, without sharing germs and the flu virus.  Sesame Street's Elmo made a memorable appearance urging children to aim for the elbow when sneezing, and articles from the experts at Parents magazine add another layer of understanding.  The campaign was so well-received it earned a thank you letter from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
