earned media reach
patients joined the programme for the first month alone
Science and research takes time. And ever since the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge raised over $115m, ALS patients have been eager for breakthroughs to improve their quality of life now.
Within a couple of years of diagnosis, most ALS patients end up paralysed in a wheelchair and forced to communicate via text-to-speech devices, typically through a default ‘computer’ voice.
In partnership with AI and voice specialists, BWM Dentsu created Project Revoice, a program to digitally clone ALS patients’ voices so they can keep communicating as themselves even after they can no longer physically speak.
To launch this life-changing program BWM Dentsu recreated the voice of Ice Bucket Challenge co-founder Pat Quinn and captured the moment when he spoke again for the first time in over a year.
Over 900 million earned media reach.
Week one: Over one million organic video views.
By week two: Over 41 million people joined the conversation online.
Over 680 articles globally.
Over 500 patients joined the program in the first month alone.
