Donate Life: If I Could Talk To My Donor

Embed Video
The Hallway has collaborated with heart transplant recipient Jayden Cummins on a campaign to encourage people to become registered organ donors. Launched during DonateLife Week, the campaign includes a short film created by Jayden himself, which has been supported with a multi-faceted ambient campaign developed by The Hallway. The three minute film, ​If I Could Talk To My Donor,​ is a very personal piece that writer and director Jayden made with the help of a community awareness grant from the Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA). The film features real life patients who are waiting to receive a life saving organ donation. The film’s emotional crux is each of them saying “thank you” to the anonymous person whose future organ donation may one day save their life. These 'thank you's' are a potent expression of the life saving impact that registering to be an organ donor can have. The Hallway’s ambient media campaign builds on this idea, with handwritten messages written on bridge banners, street posters, handmade roadside notices, and on greeting cards dropped at locations across Sydney. The campaign payoff is as simple as it is powerful: a​n organ is the most precious gift a person can give​. The campaign takes inspiration from handmade roadside posters and bridge banners often used to publish personal messages to loved ones – but in a very public way – usually to wish a happy birthday, welcome someone home, or even to propose marriage. It’s old fashioned personalisation for a message that is almost too personal for conventional advertising.
