Hi internet! My name is Henry and also Hank, but hank is another story for another time. I’m one of the weirdos that helps to facilitate the good times we have in Chive on Chicago.
For me this all started a while back when I was hanging with my two best friends in Vegas. My friend saw a dude sporting a BFM shirt and she lost her shit! (For those of you who don’t know, BFM is short for Bill Fuckin’ Murray) It all snowballed from there. Enter my first meet up #Chivecago! The feeling was electrifying and I hadn’t felt like that since The Rock “Layeth the Smacketh Down” on all the jabronies and candy asses!
In the past couple years; I’ve met some pretty dope people along the way that I can call my friends. I’ve witness the impact we have made locally and on the national level, it inspires me to keep doing what we do! By helping others, we in turn help ourselves and the gratitude we receive fills us with pride and emotions.
My name is Pack and not only am I a born and raised Chicagoan but I’m also one of the ring leaders of the Greatest Show on Earth, Chive On Chicago. I was introduced to the group a few years back and immediately felt like I was at home. It makes me extremely proud that know that there is such a large community, right in my own backyard, that will open their hearts up to those who truly need it.
I’m often asked by people “Why do you Chive?”. The answer is simple: because I want to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. I want to be surrounded by people like myself who will go to bat for the underdogs. I want to show the world that even the smallest ripple of kindness can become a wave. I want to leave this world a better place then when I came in and I want to have fun while doing it. WE ARE THE DIFFERENCE MAKERS!
Chive On Chicago is a very special group of hardworking, dedicated people who all come from different ethnic backgrounds, neighborhoods, lifestyles, etc. I like to think that our little community of misfits is an accurate representation of the city we love so much and call home. We are mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, and husbands and wives. We are military and we are civilians. We are Chicago. Not only is it an honor to be able to lead this wonderful group of people into the future but it is just a privilege to be surrounded by such an amazing community like Chive On Chicago.
Hello World! I’m Jeremy. I am the baby of the team having only been involved with Chive on Chicago for about a year and a half. For me, I was reluctant to even get involved with the chapter. My wife had been involved for six months by the time I started to ask her “WTF she was looking at on her phone all the time?” She explained to me about the app and the group and I was like “meh”. She finally suckered me in with theCHIVE’s Caturday posts and dragged me to a Chive on Chicago event. I fell down the rabbit hole that day and now am fully engrossed in the Wonderland that is our chapter.
What made me flip the switch, like every one of our members, there is something about it that just clicked and felt right. For me, my generation as a whole, pretty much sucks. All you see if the stupidity people my age and a little younger are doing all over the news and social media, makes the rest of us look bad. There’s several mottos at theCHIVE, but the one that hooked me first was “A Drinking Organization with a Charity Problem” I fell deeper down the hole and got to understand the whole goal behind all of this and especially Chive Charities. The goal of “Making the world a 10% better place”, that’s why I Chive.
Chive on Chicago has given me an outlet to focus on the goal of making our city a better place to be. Through their RAKs(Random Acts of Kindness), their donations to charities and the hours they volunteer they renew my hope for our society and future. The bonus for me is that I have made some pretty awesome friends along the way and that is never a bad thing! As I talk to people in my interactions with our community, I get asked “What is Chive on Chicago?” It’s a group of misfits out there making Chicagoland 10% better through one act of kindness at a time.
My name is LuGo and I am the Social Media Admin. My focus is on spreading the good word of our chapter on the internet. I mainly was brought on to bring the median chapter income up and put them in a whole new bracket. So you’re all welcome
