Amidst the ongoing pandemic that has the world in chaos, a few marketeers are playing their part well in promoting awareness and trying to stop the spread of COVID-19 by reaching out to the masses.

McCann is the latest agency to team up with six degrees of Separation star, Kevin Bacon in order to urge people to remain at home during this crisis to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. The campaign #IStayHomeFor is designed to create awareness about staying at home for yourself and for the people you love. It is good to see creative minds at work for the greater good during the pandemic.

At this time where people are practicing self-quarantine and social distancing, social media is the only way people are able to connect with each other. The campaign is a tremendous effort to ensure public safety and shows the company’s social responsibility to the world.

#IStayHomeFor’ asks people to post an image or video to their social media channels of themselves at home holding up the name of a person they want to keep safe and then nominating 6 other friends to do the same. Kevin Bacon named his wife, Kyra Sedgwick and further nominated David Beckham, Elton John, Demi Lovato, Kevin Hart, Brandi Carlile and Jimmy Fallon to join him in this cause.

#IStayHomeFor @kikkosedg! Hey everybody, it’s now so important to stay home and keep our distance from others if you are able. It’s one way we can help prevent the spread of #Coronavirus and save lives. The more of us who can, make it safer for those who can’t. So if you’re home too like me, post a video or photo with a sign like mine, telling who you are staying home for and ask 6 friends to do the same. Post it with the hashtag #IStayHomeFor so I can see and share. The more folks involved, the merrier – We’re all connected by various degrees (Trust me, I know!) I’m kicking it off with @jimmyfallon @eltonjohn @Brandicarlile @kevinhart4real @ddlovato @davidbeckham – but I encourage YOU ALL to join in too! Let’s use this 6 Degree thing to do some good! . . . . #Corona #Coronavirus #StayHome #StaySafe #6Degrees #ThinkingOfYou #SpreadTheWord
