US Creative Work of the Week: State Farm reminds people not to forget to give after holidays are over

People give plenty during the holiday season, and that includes to those most in need. But often when the holidays fade into memories, so do those who still need our help. That's the concept behind a State Farm ad that reminds people to continue to give even when the tree and tinsel have come down.

As a way to remind people that the season of giving never ends and highlight the importance of giving back regardless of the time of the year, State Farm created a post-holiday initiative to drive awareness of the continued need to stay involved.

This sentiment is conveyed through 'Don’t You,' a touching film created by State Farm’s creative agency DDB Chicago. In one seamless camera movement, the creative tells a story that emphasizes the need for volunteers year-round, using a poignant cover of the Simple Minds song 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' by Willis Earl Beal, as scenes of the holidays at a shelter fade to sadder images.

For its humanity and care of the subject, our voters chose it as our US Creative Work of the Week.
