#Join In – Christmas Day with Sarah Millican
Comedian Sarah Millican invites anyone on their own this Christmas Day to join her and a multitude of other nice people on Twitter for a chit-chat that can last all day if you want it to.
As Sarah says, “Social media has its faults for sure (trolls etc) but its also brilliant at lessening loneliness. It’s helped me when I’m on the road or on a train or up late because I can’t sleep and I know it does the same for others. I started #joinin four years ago – so this Christmas Day will be my fifth. It started because I’m a big softie and can’t bear the thought of people being alone at this time of year.”
By using the hashtag #joinin you can join a community made up of those feeling lonely this Christmas Day. Sarah and followers of her #joinin campaign converse via Twitter. They talk about what they are having for their dinner, comment on television programmes they are watching, and all sorts of other things. Sarah has over 2.5 million followers on her Twitter account, so you can be sure there will be a conversation going on that you can #joinin with. The conversations tend to take on a life of their own and you will be surprised how many tweets you will receive from other people who enjoy the same things as you do.
Just being able to interact with others and have a bit of a laugh can really change the day for people who are on alone on 25th December.
Its really easy to #joinin. Just go to @sarahmillican75 on Twitter
