Directed by Moth Studio via Hornet for The Richards Group, this animation campaign for the Salvation Army tells different stories about hardship and what generosity means to those in need--as well as to those who give.

One of those public service spots introduces us to Emma, an elderly homeless woman who remembers her childhood when she had a roof over her head. Back then, she loved holiday dinners when family got together and listened to Xmas music. She particularly enjoyed a piece of pie for dessert. Those days were long ago but thanks to the Salvation Army--and the donations made by people into that group’s red kettles--Emma can again experience a holiday meal, a sense of belonging and hopefully a better life down the road.
