What happens when you take Foreigner’s hit song “I Want to Know What Love Is” and combine it with kids from the Shriners Hospitals for Children? You create a powerful and compelling campaign about the Hospitals’ work and their life-changing support of children with disabilities.

Join us for a behind-the-scenes story from campaign producer Tammy Robbins, as she tells us how it came together, how the resulting video and public service announcements were used, and their results.
