US Ad of the Day: Donate Life America gamifies organ donation with ‘Healing dice’
To incentivize gamers to become registered organ donors, Donate Life America is giving away a limited edition set of organ-containing gaming dice.
Starting today, gamers can go from tabletop and desktop champions to posthumous heroes, thanks to Donate Life America.
Donate Life, the nonprofit organization dedicated to providing more donated organs for the 100,000+ people waiting for transplants, today released a sweepstakes for all organ donors on its Instagram and YouTube pages.
The prize? A custom set of eight polyhedral gaming dice with tiny, hand-painted organs and tissues inside, called ‘The Healing Dice.’ From the lungs to the pancreas, each of the depicted organs can save and heal a life via deceased donation.
What’s more, The Martin Agency-created campaign is targeted towards an extremely passionate and imaginative group of people: gamers. By putting the dice amid esoteric ephemera like goblets, skulls and swords, the spot seeks to tap into the lore gamers often create during games with their hobbyist friends. For example, the eighth die, called ‘The Lifesaving Die,’ features an anatomical heart and reserved for ‘death saves,’ which gamers will recognize as key life and death moments in a game.
To enter to win, registered donors can visit www.thehealingdice.com between Monday, February 27 and Monday, March 27. Winners will be announced throughout March.
