There a few different options for this project in 2023. And now that your donations are tax-deductible, we hope to have more financial support.
Below are a few possibilities. Do you want to be involved? Please let us know here.
“Unfiltered Friends”: This would be way to connect people based on real life, similar to the Charleston Connects project I ran in 2016.
The Friendship Squad: This is something City Voices does in New York City. They have a video about it on YouTube and you can learn more on their website. What if we did something similar in Charleston? People would have someone walk beside them through a shared struggle but it would not overlap with existing services.
Community Skillshare: There’s no shortage of free courses online, but what if we shared what we know in a community setting?
Craft Moves: Making crafts for strangers, one of the many cool projects to come out of the Loneliness Lab.
If you want to explore any of these ideas or share your own, please fill out our short form.
