This year, Ramadan is not being celebrated like it used to be earlier â€“ on normal times. Ramadan is a time when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, meet families and their communities, give to charity, remember the year gone by and resolve to be better as individuals.Â
But due to the Covid-19 crisis, social distancing is the new norm and lockdown rules have restricted people from gathering and celebrating with their relatives and friends for the well-being of all.Â
This Ramadan, brands too are urging to care for others. The campaigns show efforts of frontline workers, people arranging meals for the underprivileged and urging all to follow precautions in this challenging time and look for a better world in the eyes of kids.
Tata Motors pays a tribute to truckers, essential workers and their families with an endearing video campaign, #CelebratingGoodness this Ramadan.

The brand salutes people who have chosen to serve in the holy month of Ramadan, amid Covid 19.

Babyshop's film gives an optimistic message through the eyes of kids this Ramadan month. Conceptualised by FP7 McCann Dubai, the film shows that if we learn from what children will remember of Covid-19, we can help build a world we all deserve, not just during this time but even when we get through this challenging phase.
The film taps into the virtues of remembrance and resolve intrinsic to Ramadan. Children from around the world were asked to share what they'll remember from Covid-19. Their surprising and evocative answers have been combined with poignant photography and inspired an original song, and collectively, tell an incredible Ramadan story.Â
