The campaign, kicking off April 27, asks people to submit a thank you message to an essential worker “near you” on social media with the #OutThereForUs hashtag.

This includes New York’s Times Square.

“While many of us are isolating at home, essential workers are true heroes, bravely continuing their jobs, risking their health and safety to support their communities,” Lisa Sherman, president & CEO of the Ad Council, says in a statement, adding that the PSA “conveys our nation’s support for those extraordinary individuals that continue to keep the country moving. We’re truly grateful.”
