S.O.S.: How Kindness Saves All Souls

S.O.S.: How Kindness Saves All Souls

Show Notes

How far would you go to end loneliness? Would you go to the lengths that Tony Williams, a retired widower, did to try to connect with his community? He printed up hundreds of business cards to hand out, hoping people would reach out for a chat. No one did. He placed a big sign in his window telling the world the silence inside his home was unbearable, pleading for people to call him. What do you think happened next? The adage that “it’s better to give than to receive” has been scientifically proven to have benefits and Tony Williams’ sign became a signal.
