3 Stops 4 Humanity

Over the weekend I spent the most amazing day with some of my favorite people in Chicago by participating in the first ever 3 Stops 4 Humanity (#3s4h) put together by the Habitat For Humanity Chicago Youth Board.

What was so unique about this event is that it’s a completely different way to raise funds for non-profits, like HFH. Companies donate their services and funds in exchange for influencers using their social media presence to promote the business. I thought this was such a cool concept and it was an honor to amongst some of the top influencers in Chicago and get to participate in some really cool experiences around the city.

Here’s how I spent my Saturday…and it was all for a great cause :)
