WRITE A CARD TO THE DUTCH ELDERLY

Let’s meet this moment of crisis together, and put a smile on their faces. 👵

WRITE A CARD!

AN EPIDEMIC OF LONELINESS

As the baby boom generation grows older, more people are unable to meet their basic social needs of friendship, recognition and belonging. Many elders spent their days in complete isolation.

In Rotterdam, 85% of people above the age of 70 feel lonely most of the time.

You can make a humble but meaningful gesture by sending a card. It’s free and takes less time to write than the length of the average YouTube video.
