Join Me

Welcome, one and all, to the... JOIN ME wikicities NEW.jpg

"Bored, Danny Wallace placed a whimsical small ad in a local paper, saying simply ‘Join Me’. Within a month he was receiving letters and e-mails from strangers all over the country, eager to sign up. Teachers, mechanics, sales reps, vicars, schoolchildren, pensioners – all pledged allegiance to his cause. No one knew what that cause was. Least of all Danny...

Soon he was proclaimed Leader. Increasingly obsessed, and possibly power crazed, he risked losing his sanity and his loyal girlfriend. But who could deny the attraction of a global following of thousands of devoted joinees?

If only he could come up with something for everyone to do…"

Scroll down to read more about Join Me itself, but in the meantime, our latest initiative for May 2015 is...

Food Bank May!

Whenever and wherever you like. Do something nice for a foodbank.

After the election, whatever your political feelings, let's do something for people who need acts of kindness. Find your local food bank and do something, anything, to help them, any day in May.

Go it alone or get others involved, it's up to you!

What you do could even be as simple as taking them some of your used shopping bags so they can re-use them. Or you could contact them and ask about making donations or volunteering your time... the possibilities are very wide.

Please visit the Joinee forum to discuss your ideas for what to do, and perhaps arrange a Join MEet in your local area to work together with others!

Introduction for Joinees

  • This site aims to explain everything you might want to know about the collective known as Join Me, and it is intended for Joinees old and new alike.
  • We're working on a new directory of Joinees which you can browse — and if you prefer, you can search for people by name.

A "Wiki" like this is interactive — it's not just for reading, you can write on it too!

It's hoped that everyone involved in Join Me will help add further details to create a comprehensive guide to a collective that is over 15,000 people strong worldwide. (You can find out how to do this by reading the help pages.)

Of course, since it's not written by just one person, you must please remember that what you read is a snapshot of opinions, and it is not "official policy" or any such thing. There are a team of admins, though, and we'll try to keep the information here up-to-date and accurate.

Further reading — and viewing!

  • A few Joinees have worked on this FAQ. (This is currently a bit out of date!)
  • Indulge in memories of Join Meets, or just see what we get up to; lots of Joinees upload photos to flickr!


Here are some handy starting points if your head is full of questions!
