Whitehouse Post Cuts Gripping Portrait of Child Refugee for Save the Children
Editorial company Whitehouse Post teams up with London content agency Don’t Panic to highlight a heart-wrenching walk in the shoes of a child named Lily who’s caught in the midst of conflict.
Opening with a meager birthday celebration, the story quickly snaps back to the traumatic war-torn nightmare that is daily life for young Lily. Second in the series, this new spot promotes the ongoing efforts of global non-profit organization, Save the Children. Whitehouse Post editor James Forbes-Robertson partners with Stink director Tom Green to offer an unflinching, closeup look into the seemingly endless perils, trauma, and jeopardy that refugee children face, which can often be overlooked by countries distanced from war and political violence. This latest film serves as a powerful and thought-provoking call to action, reminding viewers that just because it’s not happening to our children, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.
