Japanese Remembrance Campaign Launches Today

By Tonya Garcia Comment

In honor of the four month anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan, VCU Brandcenter, DiGennaro Communications, ad agency McKinney, Clear Channel, and Matt Miller, president of the American Independent Commercial Producers are launching STILLforJAPAN, which is seeking “moments of stillness” to remember and support the people of Japan. Kaede Seville, a New York-based reporter for Nikkei is also leading the campaign.

A Clear Channel billboard in New York’s Times Square will display messages once every hour starting at 1p.m. as part of the campaign, and the company’s radio division in NY has donated time for an ad spot.

There’s also a website and #StillforJapan hashtag to participate and send messages of comfort.
