A new heartwarming animated video was released this week that not only pays tribute to the unsung heroes of COVID-19, but also underscores the importance of being kind to others. Plus, watching it supports the non-profit behind Sesame Street. It’s called When Nobody’s Watching, and it’s the kind of feel-good short we can all use right now.
When Nobody’s Watching Video
The story follows a group of kids who are connected to one another during the pandemic through flashlight signals and cans-on-strings. As they view the “new normal” from their bedroom windows, they all notice one woman — a neighbor who is also a frontline physician — as she returns home from the hospital each morning. They spy on her daily actions, see how the events of these last few months are weighing on her, and decide to make a sweet, small gesture of thanks.
“It’s been said that a person’s true character is revealed by the things they do when nobody’s watching, and our video pays tribute to all of the unsung heroes who have been doing exactly that throughout the pandemic,” said Rich Levy, Chief Creative Officer at Klick Health, which produced the short. “Like so many frontline workers, the heroine in our video doesn’t realize that her selflessness is inspiring others, like the neighborhood children. In just naturally being kind, she is modeling kindness, making it contagious, and teaching us all to be kinder in the process.”
Your View Helps Sesame Workshop
Sesame Workshop is a non-profit organization that has been around since 1969. Their mission is to tackle the most urgent needs of preschool children and their families with a wide range of media, formal education, and philanthropically funded social impact work.
Everything Sesame Workshop produces – from the Sesame Street television show to their recent Caring for Each Other pandemic response initiative – is based on decades of research from leading early childhood experts. As such, Klick has decided to help them out.
Klick Health is donating a dollar for each of the first 10,000 YouTube views of When Nobody’s Watching to Sesame Workshop. Klick is also adding Sesame Workshop onto its Klick It Forward platform, which rewards Klicksters with charitable dollars to donate to charities of their choice.
