Thanks, everyone, who participated in our chat yesterday! It was great to speak with everyone about the struggles, the resources, and the affirmation of balancing work to get a paycheck and work to do good in this world.
Special shout-out to @EchoingGreen & @laragalinsky for joining us and sharing a little insight without giving away the whole book called Work on Purpose. Everyone should check out the book and really think about getting it, I think mine will be shipping tommorrow. Also, take a peek at Echoing Green‘s Work on Purpose Resources Page.
Also, I want to special shout-out @ebraden33, Liz Braden from Building Tomorrow! She did a great job letting everyone know about yesterday’s Millennial Chat via Twitter! Thanks, Liz!

A GREAT first chat yesterday! A ton of great ideas being shared, and a ton of great connections being made. Like I said at the end of the chat yesterday, @MillennialChat is a chat for millennials between millennials and about things that millennials would like to talk about.
So, my first thank you goes to all of those who participated in our first poll to decide our theme for the chat!
Our theme – ‘How to take millennials beyond interaction and to DONATION’ – ended up bringing a lot of conversation about useful tools, the amount of time to run an online campaign, and how you should recognize millennials who have given online. And, I think many of these conversations could stem to another theme. Leading to that, I invite you to partake in our post-chat survey:
