A WORLD WITHOUT LONELINESS

 “Loneliness is one of the greatest health concerns people face.”

— Harvard Health

“In 2019, 61% of Americans surveyed are lonely."

— CIGNA

"Lack of human connection has an impact similar to the effects of smoking 15 cigarettes a day."

— CNN

 “Loneliness can increase the risk of heart disease, arthritis, Type 2 diabetes, dementia and even suicide attempts.”

— New York Times

Loneliness is the inability to connect in meaningful ways that give us a sense of significance and belonging. Loneliness is proven to be significantly harmful to both physical and mental health. The solution to loneliness is connection. We have seen firsthand the devastating effects of prolonged loneliness. So we are on a mission to end it. 


I KNOW LONELY PROJECT

The I Know Lonely Project harnesses the power of stories, cultivates empathy & understanding, inspires meaningful connections, and helps people feel less lonely.
