2011 Nonprofit PR Awards: Public Service


One - Bellies

In 2010, advocacy organization ONE launched a PSA campaign featuring pregnant women to increase membership for ONE and raise awareness around the issue of ending mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2015. The PSA was part of a broader campaign—“No Child Born with HIV by 2015”—to urge world leaders attending the U.N. Summit to fully fund the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

ONE relied on celebrities Lady Gaga, Jeremy Piven, Dave Matthews and Demi Moore to share the PSA on Twitter and Facebook. During the U.N. Summit, ONE volunteers stood outside NBC’s Today wearing ONE T-shirts in hopes of appearing on air during the live program. ONE also distributed the PSA on networks such as MTV and VH1. The PSA received over 268,000 YouTube views in 2010.
