Contact the Elderly is the only national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation among older people through face to face contact. Supported by a network of volunteers, the charity organizes monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people, aged 75 and over, who live alone.
Common Good is a special initiative of Newman’s Own Foundation to help encourage philanthropy on a global scale by highlighting the wonderful, purposeful pursuits of charitable organizations, individuals, businesses, and others, acting on behalf of the Common Good and making our world a better place for all. Created and curated by the media company Narrative Content Group, the site provides a platform to share stories from a large and wide-ranging group of contributors with a diverse group of site visitors at no cost. Newman's Own Foundation paid for the site’s development and underwrites its annual stewardship.
