A ‘#Stay Home Save Lives’ movement across the U.S. has been launched to bring together industries and businesses in spreading the Stay Home message to Americans. In response, Volcom has partnered with the Ad Council as part of phase 2 in their #StayHomeForThis campaign.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ad Council, White House, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced today that they are joining Google and leading advertising, media and marketing trade associations to launch a nationwide “#StayHome. Save Lives.” movement. The new industry-wide initiative encourages the American public to stay home to slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus. Beginning today, more than XX leading advertising, media and marketing companies will integrate new “roof” iconography in their logos and will promote PSAs that focus on social distancing from the #AloneTogether platform.
