Millennials -107



In this episode a chat with two dynamic women who each focus on issues concerning Millennials. Paige Cornetet of Millennialguru.com and Rachel Klausner of getmillies.com are themselves millennials.

Rachel Klausner is the Founder and CEO of getmillie.com and the Millie App.  She believes Millennials are not always fiscally responsible, but want to see and change the world they live in.  Rachel saw philanthropists approach giving thoughtfully, so reasoned why couldn’t she? She wanted to be thoughtful about where to allocate her charitable dollars, to build a social, cause-oriented community of young people who want to make a difference. And that’s how the Millie App was born.  Now her organization is helping to connect scores of non-profits with young people and others who are eager to help.
