The HDFC Bank Stop Mithani campaign is the perfect example of the Leo Burnett HumanKind philosophy where we motivated lakhs of people to come together for a worthy cause. This is the story of Mr. Mithani who has donated blood 151 times and has just turned 65 – an age post which donating blood could be fatal. We actually got the entire nation to save him by donating blood in his place – 3,50, 0000 people pledged to donate blood to stop him. Congratulations to both the HDFC Bank and Leo Burnett teams on winning the Grand Prix.”
