We are excited to see what they achieve to combat our crisis of disconnection.

"Only7Seconds is actively fighting isolation by encouraging people to use whatever is at their disposal to reach out and to let people know they are not alone. We all are longing for hope and seeking to belong. Only7Seconds is a powerful movement that is reminding the world of the truth - there is hope and you do belong."
