The business objective with this Video Marketing Campaign

Our intent to create this video was purely to show our community how thankful we are to them. We wanted to show that the SleepyCat family goes beyond providing mattresses and such initiatives are made possible thanks to each and every SleepyCat customer. 

SleepyCat wants to spread the goodness of sleep among all. which is why we try our best to give back to society in our own way.

Conceptualization and Execution – Video Production

We wanted to make it simple and as real as possible.

While doing our research we found that shelter homes and NGOs are places where there is a high demand of mattresses but many do not have the means to provide them.

So, we try to partner with such organizations whenever possible. We had first partnered with Hope Kolkata, a shelter home for Boys. We later tied up with Global Citizen India that helped us identify Baale Mane for our second donation drive. It is a lovely shelter home for girls based in Bangalore. We were able to fill all the rooms at the shelter with comfy mattresses for the children there.

The Global Citizen India team put us through to the administrative team at Baale Mane. We were granted permission by the team for the project and had a chance to first do the initial reiki of the location. We hired a video creator ( he and his team functioned from Bangalore as well) who joined us a day before the event for reiki and we decided the shots to be taken, the flow of the event and rehearsed the script. 

We visited the home, interacted with the team there, played games and had a lovely meal with everyone at the shelter. We let the children open some of the mattress boxes and seeing their faces light up was what made all of the efforts worth it! Knowing that they would be able to sleep peacefully gave a sense of pride and fulfillment as a brand.
