MS Thru a Child’s Eyes
Kim Ball, Ogilvy’s global director of communications, has been living with MS (multiple sclerosis) throughout her thirteen years in the agency network’s office in Paris. Ogilvy Paris has worked with Kim and her daughter Sienna to create MS Thru a Child’s Eyes a short film in which Sienna talks about what its like to have a mother with MS. The mother and daughter are shown on the pavements of Paris, Kim in her wheelchair and Sienna on a skateboard, with Sienna’s reflective voiceover providing insights into their life together.
Rocky Mountain MS Center
Kim writes: “On Saturday, September 10, I was humbled to be the key note speaker at the Rocky Mountain MS Center and to share my daughter’s story of “MS Thru a Child’s Eyes” at the organization’s annual gala of 550+ caring individuals behind the Center’s determination to improve the lives of those with MS and their families through Care, Education and Research. MS is a daily challenge (to have and to live with) but when you know that communities like the Rocky Mountain MS Center, friends and family are behind you all the way, you can’t help but feel inspired by the love…every single day.”
The Rocky Mountain MS Center is receiving donations, for care, support, education, and research for people living with MS and their families, at thankyouforcaring.org
