Tiny Tickers Twinkle Twinkle Little Heart

To get a nation focused on last-minute Christmas shopping to consider the plight of child heart patients who miss the festive magic, Golin connected the Christmas lights of London’s famous shopping district, Seven Dials, to the heart monitor of a 2-year old heart patient, Billy.

The Christmas lights pulsed in time with his heartbeat in the last shopping week before Christmas, creating an emotive Christmas tale. The campaign sparked conversation and emotion, which sent the UK story around the globe. The results against our objectives speak for themselves; showing the power of a human story told well and changing the entire profile of Tiny Tickers heart charity.
