Creative Experiential Campaign for Sick Kids

In May 2012, SickKids launched its first-ever Healthy & Happy campaign in support of kids’ health by putting a positive twist to what can be a very difficult time for people. SickKids asked people from communities in the GTA to stand up and Do The Happy to give thousands of children a better chance at a healthy and happy life. Fervent Events was happy to be part of this exciting campaign and helped launch the day.


Happy Mural; This was created on site by well wishers posting positive messages on a mural to be placed in the hospital.

Happy Mail; People of the community filled out cards with uplifting messages, which were then mailed in our onsite post box and the ‘delivered’ to passersby by Fervent Mailmen.

Toronto’s Largest Happy Face; People of the community were asked to come together and create a giant human happy face which was visible from the sky. Fervent Events coordinated 400 people on the ground for a media photo op from the 43rd floor of the Sheraton Hotel!
