Cadbury Dairy Milk has announced the launch of #HeartTheHate campaign, against cyber-bullying.

 

Commenting on the launch of this unique campaign, Anil Viswanathan, Director – Marketing (Chocolates), Mondelez India, said: “Cadbury Dairy Milk as a brand, believes that if there’s one thing that can shine a beam of light through the cracks in an increasingly divided world – is generosity. A little bit of generosity can go a long way and often it’s the smallest things that have the biggest impact. Cyber-bullying is something which affects everyone especially young people as they feel isolated and depressed when they are exposed to it. The #Heartthehate campaign builds on a very simple insight that when friends post something as simple as a purple heart in response to the trolls, young people feel less isolated and hence the impact of online bullying is reduced. This campaign is another small step to create a big impact towards social issues.”

 

Added Prakash Nair, Executive Vice President, Ogilvy India: “Today while online/social media has become the youth’s hangout place, it is also a place where they face a lot of harassment and bullying. Cadbury Dairy Milk, with its proposition of Kuch Achha Ho Jaaye, Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye, decided to act on this by arming the youth with a simple weapon to silence the bully – a purple heart emoji. Whenever a friend is getting trolled, all they must do is troll the troller with a purple heart. This simple, generous act of posting a purple heart can help drown out hate comments. Even if one bully is drowned by the purple heart, it will be a worthwhile initiative.

 

The campaign is being executed with the support of Wavemaker India.
