Under these unprecedented times of social distancing, we feel that social isolation, especially for our seniors, can lead to many problems like loneliness. Through our organization, Say Smile, volunteers call senior citizens who want to see, talk to, email, or even play online games with a friendly face.
We now have over 70 volunteers, many of who are multilingual, and we have made around 400 calls and counting! We have partnered with 5 senior retirement communities and 3 senior-care non profits. Through these centers and organizations, we participate in special projects like making masks and cards to deliver to senior centers.
My friends and I have reached out to people through social media and NextDoor as well as contacted senior communities. We want to spread this initiative to as many people as possible, but we need your help to do so. If you want to talk to a friendly person do contact us, and if you want to help too do feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Volunteering at Say Smile has been such an amazing experience! It is so heartwarming to connect with seniors and to hear the joy in their voices when we talk to them. Making cards and calls always put a smile on my face, and brighten my day.
Say Smile has given me the amazing opportunity to connect with seniors during these difficult times! It offers a way for me to be involved in rewarding work and to help bring a smile to someone else’s face! Let’s not forget our seniors during this time and choose to stick together. Say Smile offers the perfect way to do that!
I don't know what mysterious force put your interesting greeting card in my mailbox, but I try never to challenge good fortune.
Thank you for the delightful card and delicious candy that now makes me unable to talk until I finish the piece I chose.
It is a lovely surprise and makes me smile to receive a hand made card or picture from someone who takes the time to let us know they care and wish us a happy day.
Thank you for your very thoughtful message! And we really enjoyed your joke about “actors".
