This is Quitting

In 2019, vaping was so popular that young people felt they had no way out. We had to create permission for young people to begin their quitting journeys. Telling them to quit would come off as finger wagging; we had to make quitting feel just as rebellious as vaping itself. So we created a nationwide, can’t-miss party of JUUL destruction – and invited would-be quitters to join in. Effectively, we doubled young people’s intent to quit vaping and grew This is Quitting signups by 160%.

My Vaping Mistake

In 2019, an entire generation of teens were becoming addicted to nicotine. One in three teens were currently vaping, a behavior they considered harmless. Five months after launching, we exposed teens to The Real Cost’s “My Vaping Mistake” series and asked them what they thought of vaping. A third of exposed teens felt that vaping caused significant anxiety, and 9 out of 10 were now aware of the serious mental and physical health risks of vaping.

#MyWishForMoms gives voice to postpartum depression

There’s a critical need to break the profound silence surrounding postpartum depression. The #1 complication of pregnancy, more than 513,000 women suffer annually -- double those diagnosed with breast cancer. Yet there are no ribbons or national promotions for its awareness. And fewer than 15% of these mothers receive treatment. We set out to change that. We broke that silence with our #MyWishForMoms campaign and postpartum depression survivor Chrissy Teigen. Together we generated over 19 million interactions on this closeted subject from women in all 50 states and 130 countries.
