Madano has been shortlisted in the PRCA National Awards for 2019. We have been shortlisted in the Crisis and Issues Management category for our work with Tower Hamlets Community Housing.

Our entry, titled Supporting a housing association at its most critical juncture, is up against two other entries. The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony on the 12th November at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

The campaign embodies everything about Madano. From taking an initial challenge in 2016, the client team applied thinking which involved our insights, creative and communications teams to deliver a positive outcome for the organisation.

Let’s talk organ donation

If you’ve somehow been hiding under a rock for the past few months, you might have missed Lewis Capaldi’s hit song ‘Someone You Loved’ and the original music video telling the story of a successful heart transplant, in partnership with Live Life Give Life – a video that truly tugs on the heartstrings (if you’ll excuse the pun).

As of September 2nd, the start of Organ Donation Week, 6309 people are waiting for a transplant – and only 1489 have received a transplant since April 2019.[1] Sadly, every day 3 people on the transplant list will die due to a shortage of organ donors.[2]

If you haven’t put much thought to this previously, now is the best time to think about it. It can be a scary thing to consider, but having conversations with loved ones and signing up to be an organ donor can be life-changing for many people.

For every 1 organ donor, 9 people could receive a life-saving transplant.

Just let that sink in.

Spend 2 minutes of your life signing up on this website, and you could save the lives of 9 other people.
