great ad i think the idea is smart , but as they mentioned it seems more related to child abuse than asthma

Asthma is not being able to breath. I think that's what this does very greatly. I also find it great.

It would of scared the crap out of me if I picked up the issue, turned it around, and saw this image. But it would also make me much more likely to look into the Foundation.

Good media, but I agree. It doesn't make me think asthma. It looks more like the kid is being sufficated to death... That might be the point, but it looks like murder!
