LinTeractive wins digital mandate for Dr Agarwal's Eye Hospital

LinTeractive has won the digital marketing mandate for Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital, a super-specialty global chain of eye-care centers headquartered in Chennai.

As its partner, the agency would be offering digital marketing capabilities including search, social, web, mobile, social media monitoring, analytics and campaign activation to Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital.

Kicking off its inaugural work, LinTeractive has unveiled #Dare2Stare, an interactive online initiative designed to encourage more people to pledge their eyes for donation. The initiative goes live through multiple digital touch-points and a website created for collecting eye-donation pledges, dare2stare.in.

Sharing his views on choosing LinTeractive as the AoR and also on the campaign, Dr Amar Agarwal, CMD, Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital said, “We’re glad to have LinTeractive on-board as our global digital marketing partner and excited about our first campaign together, #Dare2Stare. As a company committed to the cause of increasing awareness around the importance of eye donation, we want to play a role in bringing vision to more people in the world. We hope the campaign will open many more eyes and make more people come forward to donate their eyes to others, after they’re gone.”

On being appointed the global digital partner for Dr Agarwal’s Eye Hospital, Vikas Mehta, CMO, Lowe Lintas + Partners said, “Dr Agarwal’s is an organisation with deep-domain knowledge and a great heart. They are at the early stages of building their digital presence, which allows us to co-create with them, the entire digital marketing ecosystem. Driving ‘digital transformations’ excites us both as a business and as a team of practitioners. Working with an Indian company towards their global ambition, makes this partnership truly special.”

Sharing her views on the creative expression rendered to the online initiative, Gauri Joshi, Unit Creative Director, LinTeractive said, “We asked ourselves a very simple question: How could people feel emotionally connected to a visually impaired person and his need for eyes? The answer, we realised, lay in an old and popular staring game. When someone looks deeply into another set of eyes, it’s impossible to turn a blind eye to this social issue anymore. And that’s the crux of #Dare2Stare campaign. We are hopeful that this creative rendition would bring about a shift in the way people think about eye donation in general.”

#Dare2Stare is an initiative towards the cause of eye-donation in India. More than 2.5 lakh Indians can regain their vision with corneal transplantation. Donated eyes are used to conduct research and discover improved solutions to cure blindness and other eye problems. #Dare2Stare emphasises on the importance of donating one’s eyes after death to provide the gift of sight to people who need them, the release stated.
