Here’s What Happened the Week of August 21, 2017

Wowza, we’re already into the fourth week of our PCS Lost + Found Giveaway and all across the country kids are starting to go back to school! Where did summer go?! We shared more wild PCS stories this week, and the MILLIE team was out and about in Charleston!

We’ve included links (for easy sharing), the copy for the posts (in case you’ve already used up all your creative juices today), the hashtags (for optimal millennial reach) and the MILLIE logos and branding information (in case you want to feature us on your front page or something).

If you’re one of our partners, please send us what’s been happening in your world lately by emailing me at alexis@gomillie.com.
