Director Spike Lee and hundreds of New York City school children helped us create this integrated campaign paying tribute to New York City firefighters and commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Overnight, the film became the #3 worldwide trending topic on Twitter and the campaign was featured in Creativity, Shoot, Adweek, Adage, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and various other publications around the country.
