At the same time, a number of dying alone is also increasing. This is because a lot of senior citizens tends not to depend on their children or share their thoughts with them, ending up dying alone. In order to prevent them from dying alone, I designed a product to comfort each other’s loneliness by giving or taking an anonymous letter to arouse sociality
