It's time to connect the 40%.
What we do
Connect the 40% is a connection and gifting platform like no other. It is the first project of its kind to explore the link between older people’s experience of kindness and gratitude and resulting increased life satisfaction, optimism, extraversion and lower stress levels.
Through personalized gift giving, we aim to improve the lives of people living in nursing homes who don’t have someone visiting or acknowledging them on a regular basis.
