In a symbolic gesture of thanking the medics for fighting the pandemic on the first front in March 2020, on one of the covers of the issue of Wysokie Obcasy a unique drawing by illustrator Marta Frej appeared. In this way, the editors encouraged everyone who would like to express their gratitude to the medical service to stick this cover on the window, car window or share it on social media. The poster can be downloaded here.
In April, Wysokie Obcasy and Gazeta Wyborcza in cooperation with the Kulczyk Foundation launched a social campaign called “Tenderness and freedom. Let's build a balance in relationships” („Czułość i wolność. Budujmy równowagę w relacjach”), the aim of which was to support readers in surviving the difficult time of the pandemic and to provide ideas and reflection on how to prepare yourself and your loved ones for life in the world “after the coronavirus”. Another initiative aimed at supporting the readers in coping with reality during the pandemic was the special action “Superheroes save us” („Superbohaterki ratują nas”). To this end, the editors invited the participants of the “Superhero of Wysokie Obcasy” („Superbohaterka Wysokich Obcasów”) plebiscite – activists, stars of the stage, science and business to participate in the initiative. In a series of videos published on Instagram of Wysokie Obcasy they told, among other things, how to cope with quarantine or look for joy and strength in moments of doubt.
