Write Away Loneliness

Raise awareness around the importance of supporting vulnerable seniors while actually doing it!

What is Write Away Loneliness?

About the cause: A study conducted by researchers from UCSF found that adults 60 years and older who reported feeling lonely were at higher risk for functional decline in addition to the increased risk of death. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to fight loneliness with love for our elders. Nursing homes are no longer accepting visitors and many aren’t allowed to socialize with the other residents. 

What we’ll do: Raise awareness around the importance of supporting vulnerable seniors while actually doing it! Join our live event and hear from the founder of Love For Our Elders and Ted speaker Jacob Cramer as he speaks to the status of our elders and why this event is so important. We ship the entire experience to each employee home along with educational materials, writing guide, stationary, letters and stamps! The goal of the event is to write 3-4 letters to vulnerable seniors around the country. We don’t need to be the next Hemingway to change someone’s day!
