Samaritans Brew Monday will kick off today – 18 January, the third Monday in January, which is usually known as ‘Blue Monday’. Turn this day on its head and into something positive by encouraging people to get together over a warming virtual cuppa.
Reach out to a friend, family member or colleague for a virtual cuppa and a chat. It doesn’t have to be a Monday or a cup of tea, just taking time to really listen to another person could help them work through what’s on their mind.
Because now more than ever, sharing a cuppa is more than a drink – it’s about reaching out, checking in and staying connected.
Here are a few ways you can connect virtually:
- Group audio/video calling is available on Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp (up to 4 people on a call) and Facebook messenger.
- A phone call or conference call can work just as well for connecting with people, especially for those not comfortable on camera.
And don’t forget, if you use your virtual get-together to raise money for Samaritans, you’ll help give people having a tough time somewhere to turn when they need to talk. Just £5 can help them answer a call for help.
