U.K. retailer John Lewis is famous for their holiday tradition of creating touching Christmas ads that help raise money and awareness for a worthy cause. Last year, the ad featured a truly stirring message about loneliness.
There are plenty of lonely people out there who rarely get the chance to exchange even a wave or a smile with others. This is bad enough any day of the week, but during the holidays, that feeling is magnified and you might as well be thousands of miles away. Sometimes, the only way to recognize how isolated people can get is through the eyes of a child. They tend to see things a little more clearly.
Make sure that this holiday season, you take the time to reach out to folks you might otherwise forget. It will only take a little effort on your part, but could mean the world to them.
