50 States, 100 Days: The Book
Author: Chris Strub
In the summer of 2015, youth organizations in all 50 U.S. states made for a once-in-a-lifetime voluntourism quest for 29-year-old New York native Chris Strub. Equipped with a GoPro, a selfie stick, an iPhone, an iPad and a dream — and zero corporate sponsorship — Chris traveled solo to all corners of the country, using all varieties of social media, including live-streaming video, to weave together the story. This book will bring you along for the ride, as Chris balances the roller coaster of emotions of solo, unsponsored voluntourism with constantly putting on a “Happy Face” for the camera.
Chris Strub is a trailblazer, a futurist and a storyteller who loves pushing the limits of social media. As the first man to Snapchat and live-stream in all 50 U.S. states, Chris’s inspirational story has been featured on television, radio and in newspapers around the country. Chris’s unique experience with youth nonprofits nationwide makes him a one-of-a-kind resource in the social good space.
