Founders Day: Giving Back

To celebrate 81 years since Leo Burnett was founded, we wanted to share just some of the ways in which we give back to the communities we support. Most of the time, all you hear from ad agencies is about the work and the awards – but our work extends beyond that.

This extended OOO charity special introduces Metin Salih, Kate Nicoli and Laura Almond who all recognise that small contributions can have a wonderful impact and, in the words of Leo Burnett himself: 'collective solutions to problems start with individual human beings and individual efforts'

Hear more about Kate's experience here.. Follow Metin and his many projects on Instagram, and take a look at Out of Office #3 coming soon to find out more about Laura
