Creative Mornings – A BostonTweetUp Review


What it’s all aboutRachael Chong of Catchafire

Creative Mornings hold monthly events throughout Boston with the mission of “inspiring people before they go to work”, as co-organizer Marc Grubb explained. Meetings are usually held on a Friday morning mid-month. Past meetings have focused on creative strategy and the future of architecture in Boston. Plans for 2012 have not been solidified as of yet, but the full year will be outlined shortly on their website.

What happened

On December 13, 2011, roughly thirty people re-directed their usual morning schedules and instead gathered at Workbar to learn from Rachael Chong’s wisdom for non-profit professionals. Chong is currently the CEO of Catchafire, which she described as “eHarmony for nonprofit.” It is important for non-profit professionals to be aware of the true impact of their work, and for non-profits to take advantage of an individual’s skill set so as to fully optimize the experience. After comparing three non-profits effective engagement efforts, Chong reflected on how Catchafire matches volunteers up with opportunities in hopes of creating an effective and positive experience for both the foundations and also for volunteers.
