In the just released series of beautiful Pampers Ads, Über Content’s Rachel McDonald and Saatchi & Saatchi NY team up to demonstrate how babies bring out the good in people.
"There’s nothing we wouldn’t do to make life #BetterForBaby."
That's the message of this new socially conscious campaign from Pampers.
After asking parents around the world to share what they would to to be #BetterForBaby, the brand decided to surprise a few mothers by fulfilling their pledges.
In the spots, McDonald crafts a film that has a strong, heartfelt sense of humanity and a selfless truth behind it. Each film features a new family Pampers has selected, and tells the story behind the powerful transformations they provide in a close intimate way.
Examples include a backyard playground overhaul, opening a preschool, and nursery re-vamp.
The commercial is part of Pampers' #BetterForBaby campaign that began earlier this year highlighting the brand's various charity partnerships and efforts towards protecting premature babies, donating products to families in need, preventing maternal and newborn tetanus, and reducing the environmental impact of its diapers.
