Pet Therapy's Response to Covid 19: "Wednesdays with Winnie"
The Therapy dog program at Overlook Medical Center was suspended due to Covid 19 and we wanted to do something to help boost morale. Because she can't be with them in person, each week Winnie (who has become the face of the therapy dog program) sends a personal email with a video to the entire hospital staff to try and give them a moment to smile. We designed each video to have a fun (and hopefully funny) beginning element that relates to what is going on each week during the pandemic and we always end with a heart felt more serious message. The response to date has been great - Winnie gets fan mail and my After Effects skills get better each week - its a win win for everyone!
