Its hard to believe that millions of older people can go up to a month, even more without speaking with anyone. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
These men and women from all walks of life need interaction just like the rest of us. This is why John Lewis has partnered with Age UK on their new Christmas appeal to help raise awareness of what life can feel like for lonely older people.
No matter where you are in the world I am confident a program exists. I am sharing this to help bring about awareness to do something for someone which you may need done for you later in life.
Be safe, love others, be loved.

Full YouTube Video of John Lewis Christmas Advert 2015 – #ManOnTheMoon
This is the story of a young girl called Lily. Looking at the moon through her family telescope one night, she is amazed at what she finds, a man on the moon.
Lily watches on as our man goes about his chores, all alone up there. She becomes determined to get something to the moon, to send him a message and show him that someone down here is thinking of him.
