“I’ve never heard of clubfoot.”
We hear this confession almost daily. For us, it is a constant reminder that we have a lot of work to do around clubfoot awareness. We need to start conversations about this common birth defect that is devastating to children in certain areas of the world. Clubfoot needs to be treated equally in every country.
Earlier this year, we told our story to GSW, an amazing ad agency in NYC, and they were so inspired that they launched a “Passion Project” for MiracleFeet. They generously created posters, ads, and even captivating and educational videos for us. These creative pieces will help us reach new audiences with our message of hope and transformation.
We are thrilled to announce that GSW won two Bronze CLIO awards for the posters and print ads, plus one Short List recognition for Miracle Worker, a beautiful animated video we will be releasing on #GivingTuesday, November 28th. The team also won a coveted Typography Award from Communication Arts and will be featured in their magazine and on their website soon.
While we are excited about the awards and recognition for these beautiful ads, we’re even more hopeful that they will help raise awareness about untreated clubfoot. You can help continue these conversations. Use your voice to educate others that neglected clubfoot is a root cause of illiteracy, malnourishment, and abuse in low- and middle-income countries.
