St John Ambulance first aid advert: Save the boy

Save the boy - St John Ambulance first aid advert 1 Save the boy - St John Ambulance first aid advert 2

St John Ambulance launched a campaign, titled “Save The Boy”, that aims to encourage people to learn basic first aid, as while there may be thousands of SJA volunteers in the UK, they can’t always be there when an emergency occurs.

The campaign begins with an ad, shown above, directed by Dougal Wilson, which shows a child badly injuring himself by falling from a tree, with his father powerless to do anything to help him due to his lack of basic first aid skills. The spot is then supported by an interactive web experience, found online at sja.org.uk/savetheboy, where users can aid the father in helping his son, and learn some useful first aid information themselves along the way.

Interactive advertising campaign for Samaritans

Interactive advertising campaign for Samaritans 2013

Samaritans is an organization that supports and helps people in distress. Its members are volunteers. To alert the general public to suicide, the organization installed a screen next to a phone booth in the subway. When the phone rang, you could see who was calling and why. If somebody answered the phone, he or she had the chance to become a volunteer. If unfortunately nobody picked up the phone, the person on the screen committed an irredeemable act and the following message appeared on the screen: Let us not miss a single call.

Such an important video to watch! Not only for its art. But definitely for its story.

Shane Koyczan created it. And it’s called “To This Day“.

“My experiences with violence in schools still echo throughout my life but standing to face the problem has helped me in immeasurable ways.

Schools and families are in desperate need of proper tools to confront this problem. This piece is a starting point”, Shane Koyczan says.

Thanks to Kristian for sharing this!
