Let's face it, talking about poo can be taboo. It's not something we usually want to discuss with our friends or family. Yet, it's as important of topic as any. I'll be honest with you, I have a poor digestive system. For over fifteen years, I've struggled with many health issues in that area and I'm still trying to get the proper diagnosis for my problem.
ReNew Life, the leading digestive care company in the US, created a humor-centric How Does Poo Move You? Young Adult Education Outreach Initiative to educate and connect with a younger, broader demographic. Most young adults do not pay attention to their digestive health, nor have the knowledge to counteract or naturally treat digestive health issues and common issues. With a focus on "potty" humor, ReNew ran a two-month long video submission contest and spread a wide variety of tactics to spread campaign themes. Today, the campaign continues to be promoted. The dedicated 'How Does Poo Move You?' Facebook Apps are featured on ReNew Life's & Brenda Watson's Facebook pages. The applications feature the top five video submissions along with top 10 lists.
