Celebrity Face Donation, Donate Your Face

Agency: Cheil


Cleft condition is just a physical defect rather than a capability defect. However, it can result in prejudice, causing children to lose many opportunities from their birth. Celebrities donated their widely recognized faces by turning them into ones with cleft condition.
They bravely posted these imperfect portraits on social media platform and asked, “what if I were born with cleft condition?”
The campaign made an enormous splash on Tencent WeChat, the biggest social media platform in China.
For the first time, the disease got exposed to people on such a large scale, raising public awareness of it.

This professional campaign titled 'Celebrity Face Donation, Donate Your Face' was published in China in December, 2017. It was created for the brands: Operation Smile and Tencent Foundation, by ad agency: Cheil. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted about 5 years ago.
