Big Orange Heart

The charitable mission of the Big Orange Heart Foundation is to support and promote positive well-being and mental health within remote working communities. This mission came about when a group of likeminded people came together to talk about the issues of isolation, depression and loneliness associated with working remotely. There are many benefits to the distributed working model, we’re strong advocates – in fact, the entire team support BOH is remote. However, there can be issues with the potential for lack of in-person interaction and engagement.
