Here’s What Happened the Week of August 28, 2017

And there she goes…August is gone! Hello Labor Day Weekend (you snuck up on us). As we said farewell to August, we wrapped up our final week of the PCS Lost + Found Giveaway. We also started a fundraiser for Team Rubicon, to help with their efforts in the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. Check it out below!

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.
