Recognize & Rise – It Happens
A Campaign for All of Us - Making Mental Health Normal

As the Agency of Record for this client, J.O. developed a series of activations at large events, Juneteenth celebrations, and LGBTQ+ gatherings during Pride Month, which consisted of attendees joining together in releasing balloons printed with “It Happens. But it doesn’t have to define us”, symbolically “letting go” of something they have been struggling with. Our theme is being reinforced through social media with the hashtag #itHappens.
