Frequent use of gadgets, technology and the web is considered to be a strict no-no for children. How do they then create a positive environment to pass on their message?


They used Children’s day as a perfect time to start the conversation with parents. They also chose a topic that would be close to their hearts – parenting in the digital age. Over the next three days (starting 14th Nov) 2 questions pertaining to modern day parenting were put up everyday and parents had to offer their solutions.

Every question had a winner based on the entry. The winners won a ME CHAMP Tablet for their child as a Children’s day gift!


Within the first 15 minutes of announcing the campaign, #MEandMyChamp starting trending.

#MEandMyChamp trended 3 days continuously. Even when all of social media was abuzz with Sachin Tendulkar’s farewell
