Animated worms promote organ donation for Red Cross Mexico

Animated worms promote organ donation for Red Cross Mexico

The spot surfaced on Red Cross France’s Facebook page today, but has yet to be shared by Red Cross Mexico. Many appeals for organ donation focus on the suffering of waitlist patients, or tell a “hero” story about how donors can change lives with their gift. They rarely reference corpses! I like the cheekiness of “worms”.
