Godrej Hit released a new digital film to raise awareness on the Platelet Donor helpline. Speaking on the film conceptualised by Ogilvy India, Sunil Kataria, CEO – India and SAARC, Godrej Consumer Products Ltd, said: ‘’Dengue has emerged as a serious threat to public health in India causing loss of life. While people are aware that mosquito bites causes dengue they are unaware of the curative measures, especially awareness about platelets is abysmally low across the country. Hence brand HIT, in-line with its efforts to fight dengue through various means, has taken up this responsibility to ensure that not a single life is lost due to unavailability of platelets. In order to ensure that, the brand built India’s first online platelet donor community to save lives of critical dengue patients. This helpline helps dengue patients find donors from a base of 1.25 lakh registered donor across 6 cities in India. Our aim is to shift consumer attitude and behavior from lack of awareness and apathy to awareness and registration as platelet donors.’’


Added George Kovoor, Group Creative Director, Ogilvy Mumbai, on the film: “The Platelet Donor helpline reinforces Godrej HIT’s commitment to fight dengue. It has already saved many lives. This film is based on a true story of one such family. The film beautifully captures the emotion of a mother whose son was saved thanks to the helpline. And in turn make people aware of the helpline which they can access easily when in need of platelets.”
