With Christmas Day just around the corner, many are in the process of making arrangements to celebrate with friends, family or loved ones. But what of those members of the community who don’t have any options or invitations to share on Christmas Day celebrations? Let’s face it, there is nothing worse than being alone on Christmas Day.
Let’s introduce you to www.OrphanChristmas.com, a website that allows people around the world to open their hearts and homes to celebrate Christmas and to connect with others in their community who may otherwise spend this time alone.
Orphan Christmas is about opening your home and your heart to connect, join, share and celebrate Christmas with others.
Orphan Christmas is like Tinder, but for Christmas Day. There are many who, for a multitude of reasons, don’t have a place to go yuletide – from expats, students and travellers to divorcees, the homeless and the elderly. The Orphan Christmas platform was created as a means to meet and invite others to your own Christmas shindig, or to connect to others who may also be alone, to create your very own celebrations together.
How does it work?
It’s easy! Simply head to the website to register your existing Christmas Day event or invite, and interested people will contact you to make arrangements.
Alternatively, you can create your own group and event and connect to other orphans.
