Ogilvy, Kimberly Clark’s Huggies Win Platinum PR Award for Helping Diaper ‘Every Little Bottom’

Winner: Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide and Kimberly Clark’s Huggies – Helping Diaper ‘Every Little Bottom’

One in three American mothers and one in five Canadian mothers struggle to afford to buy enough diapers for their babies. Consequently, they have been forced to cut back on other basic needs to ensure their babies have the right amount of diapers. These dire circumstances only came to light after a survey conducted by Ogilvy PR and Huggies on the scope and impact of diaper need in North America. Recognizing an opportunity to create a sustainable solution to this problem, Huggies developed the “Every Little Bottom” campaign. In a span of six months, the campaign united food banks, eight nonprofits and consumers to donate 25.5 million diapers—the equivalent of diapering 8,500 babies eight times a day for an entire year. Due to its success, Huggies plans to expand the program throughout 2011. —SP
