The Dallas Mavericks, the Dallas Stars, and the Dallas Zoo have teamed up with Dallas County Health and Human Services on a clever mask-wearing campaign called North Texas Does It Right. Described as a “full-fledged movement” by the group’s creative partner, it’s intended to be a call to action for people in Dallas County to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
The campaign broadcasts the importance of wearing a mask—the single most preventative measure, the group says. Launching just as Dallas County reported a single-day high of 36 coronavirus deaths, the #NTXDoesItRight campaign in English and Spanish features local figures such as a Dallas Stars goalie and a Zoo giraffe.
Its message ”could not be more needed in our community,” says pro bono creative partner Jackson Spalding. “According to the Dallas County COVID-19 Risk Level Assessment, we are in the Red Zone, meaning “Stay Home and Stay Safe!”
Joanna Singleton, co-owner of Jackson Spalding, was connected to Dr. Philip Huang earlier this year. The pair discussed the opportunity to create a campaign aimed at helping the Dallas community understand the relatively new Dallas County Health COVID-19 Risk Levels chart and the importance of following its guidelines to help flatten the curve and protect our community.
A team from Jackson Spalding provided pro bono strategy creative and tactical support to help the team of public health experts communicate the message, according to Singleton.
