How did the “YOU ARE A SUNFLOWER” awareness campaign start and who are the people who offered their support to make this project come into life?
Everything was started by Albana Osmani, who originally gave the idea, built it and cared for the whole process, until it was accomplished. After she painted the sunflowers, she started having the first meetings with people from the creative and production fields. In many of the meetings she had with professionals, she could collect a lot of valuable tips of how she could build everything in perfection and then this product could be presented to e-Shopwww.annawhitejames.com
Who is Anna White James?
You would think that she is a foreign character, but you are wrong… J
“Anna” is the art name of the moderator Albana Osmani. “White” is the name Bora and “James” is tha name Xhemal. With some flattering and a sense of humour, this is how AlbanaOsmani calls her parents. This is a project Albana wants to make her parents proud of and also all those who joined this humanistic project.
There is a deep gratitude for Mr. Gjergj Gjika, Chairman of Fason Room in Albania, who provided with the first and accurate orientations of how the fulfilling procedure would continue.
A T-shirt will cost 20 Euro. The first 3000 units are waiting for you in e-Shopwww.annawhitejames.com on online sales, anywhere in the world.
The shipping will be free within the Republic of Albania and there will be a 75% discount for official fees in the world, thanks to DHL, the leader in the fastest postal service in the world.
Later, OLA 1 Company turned immediately into the main cooperator of the campaign.
The CEO, Mrs. Orgesa Kalemi, did not only respond positively into taking production responsibilities, but she made it possible to produce everything in a very short time. OLA 1 enabled the brandings of the highest quality, ensuring an aesthetic longevity of these T-shirts, which if washed in 60oC will still have the same quality as the first day.
The SUNFLOWER will be the same, shining and showing once again the message: YOU ARE A SUNFLOWER! OLA 1 made it possible to have a masterful sewing, the technical and graphic support. Many thanks go to the graphic designer ZenkildaKalemi, who made herself totally in disposal of this creation, by even working overtime.
Many thanks go also to graphic designers Ismet Imeri, AlbanaShehu, Polizoji Mijo and Parid Mijo for their time and creativity.
The “YOU ARE A SUNFLOWER” spot was filmed in the department of pediatric oncohematology at “Mother Theresa” University Hospital (QSUT). The children in the spot are hospitalized and they are being treated in this hospital. With the help of these kids, everything was much easier for us, because these little angels had fun playing the games we did during the shootings. With the permission of their parents and their presence in the sets, everything went in the best way possible. We deeply thank the kids, Ariana Alla, Klodiana Shkembi, Leo Jonuzi, Mikel Hakushi, Rigers Sadikaj and Huana Dajko.
We thank a lot the nurse, Klara Biraci. And last, but not least, we thank a lot the Head of the Department, Prof. Dr. Anila Godo.
We express our gratitude to Blitz.al for producing the spot. EvisMumajesi and Andon Beke, two very honorable gentlemen and their staff of cameramen, graphic designers and post production staff dedicated all their time to this product. Many thanks go to Avni Bicerri.
