How do you get social media obsessed millennials to pay attention to the growing loneliness epidemic? 

"We put them directly in the shoes of someone suffering with social isolation, challenging a young man to go it alone for a week with no phone, WiFi or contact with the outside world. After a challenging 7 days alone, we took the man to meet his elderly neighbour Barry, who regularly goes an entire week without speaking to anyone. The campaign struck a powerful chord online, receiving a staggering 59 million views and recruiting 4,000 new volunteers."
