Winner: American Heart Association – American Stroke Association – Ideal Health
In January 2010, the American Heart Association created the Ideal Health initiative as part of its effort to achieve a new national goal: by 2020, improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20%. For this exclusively online campaign, the AHA’s national Facebook page was used to advocate for behavioral changes by taking small steps, promote the use of the American Heart Association’s online tools and engage consumers—especially household decisionmakers—in ongoing conversations related to heart health. Within a year and a half of its launch, the Facebook page garnered 98,000 community members—an average growth of 171 new members each day—and 52,000 active participants per month. —BM
