‘A Sick Child Affects Everyone’ is the a new emotionally charged fundraising campaign for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Three TV ads and three radio ads bring us the painful journey experienced by parents, grandparents, siblings, extended family and friends caring for a sick child.

“There is no book for this” the father thinks in the second TV ad. It’s almost a feeling of helplessness and a donation can soften it slightly.

Stephen Forgacs from BC Children’s Hospital Foundation explains: “There’s no question that a child’s illness has a tremendous impact on the people around them. This impact extends well beyond immediate family and into communities across the province. In supporting our hospital, donors touch the lives of thousands of people well beyond the hospital walls; agency DARE realistically captured the journey of family and friends affected by a sick child through this campaign.”

The TV and radio campaign is now live and will run throughout the year.  Print ads will appear from June.
