Bekol: The Bubble Project

Bekol is an organization that works to improve the quality of life of the hard-of-hearing. The main challenge that the organization faces is denial - the barrier of shame that causes 10% of the population to live in a bubble. Most high-rating television programs in Israel are broadcast with sign-language for the hard of hearing. To get our message across- draw an entire community out of its bubble, we collaborated with Israel's leading channels to create news items dealing with deafness, the challenges faced by the hard-of-hearing, and some of the new solutions available. In the middle of the broadcast, we simply flipped the viewers' perspective.

1 day resonance. 300%? were there previous campaigns? Measurables are so shady in business.

i like the commentary : "we became the most talked about campaing...THAT DAY" what does 300% increase mean? i admit i do like the twist. it is something new, but still, there were some money involved...u ran the campaing on one tv station? or on several? we could hardly convince a tv station to run this free if they didn't get exclusivity...so they can benefit somehow.

well...hope the hard of hearing people of israel can get out of the closet. bubble.

Switching the "bubble" is a great idea, but it doesn't get at the "bubble of shame" concept referenced in the setup.

I'm sure the message was spread. The alarming statistics of hearing problems were acknowledged by the population. Nice twist in the message communication technique. The impact would have been stronger if supported by other media. A slogan is missing in my opinion.
