(Culver City, California--December 19, 2012) Foundation Content, an Indie Advertising and Production Collective specializing in cross-platform marketing for a diverse array of clients, has produced a 68-second Holiday spot for Walmart, through advertising agency Omelet. The spot, which appears on Facebook, is a component of WalMart’s “Live Better” promotional campaign, designed to help combat hunger in America.

In the spot, set against a Christmas-themed montage outside a shopping mall, we learn that 1 in 6 Americans struggle with hunger every day. Walmart is committed to giving back, and last year gave more than 250 million meals to communities across the country. Walmart has also committed $2 billion through 2015 to continue these efforts. In the spot, we see a diverse group of Christmas shoppers approach a large, gift-wrapped box covered in plates, which symbolize the millions of meals that Walmart has provided to hungry Americans. These shoppers discuss Walmart’s heroic efforts in this regard.
Walmart asks that viewers of this video join the company in its fight against hunger by sharing this video with friends and family. By helping one another, we can all live better. Visit http://www.walmart.com/livebetter to learn more.
Stacy Paris, Foundation Content’s Producer of this spot, said, “After working with Omelet this past year on 25 Walmart ‘Live Better’ episodes, it was exciting to bring one of these initiatives to life, and to watch the reactions real people had during our shoot. It’s great to see a huge corporation such as Walmart working hard to give back to the community. We at Foundation Content feel good about being a part of this effort, if only in a small way.”
