I Will on September 11
In observance of the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, Deutsch LA joined forces with MyGoodDeed, a leading 9/11 nonprofit organization, and HandsOn Network, the volunteer activation division of Points of Light Institute, on the comprehensive “I will (pay tribute)” public service announcement campaign. “I will” is an outgrowth of MyGoodDeed’s mission to inspire millions of people annually to dedicate the day of September 11th to voluntary works of charity, good deeds and compassion. The “I will (pay tribute)” campaign’s goal is to get 1 million people to remember by doing on 9/11. TV, online, out of home, radio, Facebook and print material centre around a digital quilt made of tributes—a post, a video or photo upload— posted by 9/11 families, first responders, celebrities and everyday Americans, housed on 911day.org and the 9/11 Day of Service Youtube Channel. The campaign includes two new Facebook applications: the 9/11 Tribute application, which enables individuals to post their plans for 9/11 on Facebook.com/911day; and the “I will volunteer” application.
