It's time for a connection revolution.

Over the last 5 years, we have heard story after story from youth experiencing anxiety, bullying, depression, eating disorders, and suicide. Loneliness is at the root of most of these stories. Youth are more lonely than ever and we're committed to doing something about it. From May 2-June 15th, we are activating participation, crowdfunding for our future, and amplifying your stories. 



Hear directly from Luke, our executive director about why we're calling for a connection revolution!

Any size gift makes an impact. Every dollar counts. You can engage your own networks too! Create your own goal towards the campaign and invite neighbors, friends, and family to join the movement. We’re looking for 100 people to raise $250. Will you be one of our champions?

IT's no secret around here—  we believe stories help others feel less lonely. Will you share your story with us?

“The work Luke and Only7Seconds are doing to address the loneliness epidemic is so important, as loneliness is only getting worse with each generation."

David Siegel, CEO of Meetup

“The work Luke and Only7Seconds are doing to address the loneliness epidemic is so important, as loneliness is only getting worse with each generation."

David Siegel, CEO of Meetup


Five years ago the concept of Only7Seconds was born. Since then, thousands of people have rallied around the call to inspire and lead to meaningful, intentional connection.

We are so grateful for our volunteers, big and small, who have helped spread our message wide and far. Grateful for the opportunities that parents, schools and organizations provide us to serve the kids in their lives. Grateful to our partners and donors who have helped us realize our mission.
So many lives are better today because of every person who has believed in and lived out our mission. There are lives that have been saved and others that are in much better places because of our work and your engagement with us. If you have supported us in the last five years, in any way, sincerely, thank you. We couldn’t do it without you alongside us!

Our world is a little less lonely because of each and every individual who has participated with our work in the last 5 year years.

Let's call it "the 7 project", here's the plan:
on Tuesday May 7th, we want as many people as possible to post a "7" representing Only7Seconds, the loneliness epidemic, and the importance of taking only 7 seconds to reach out. 

Post a 7 on social media. You can be as creative as you'd like OR you can always use one of the photos or graphics here!  If you share a story, post, reel, or tiktok- tag @only7seconds so we can repost you.

Download the social kit for free content & captions to make it the most easy!

We have a vision of Only7Seconds absolutely flooding social media feeds, stories, and for you pages on May 7th.
