Hi, I'm Chris. I'm passionate about helping nonprofits develop authentic social media strategies -- particularly with live video.


In the summer of 2015, I traveled solo to all 50 U.S. states, and volunteered with a different youth organization in each state.


Chris is among the world's leading

social media evangelists, introducing nonprofits nationwide to new mediums.


Learn the stories behind the stories
and support Chris's adventures by reading '50 States, 100 Days: The Book.'


In addition to '50 States, 100 Days,' Chris blogs regularly about live-streaming, Snapchat and other social media trends.

In the summer of 2015, 29-year-old New York native Chris Strub traveled the United States to volunteer with youth-related organizations nationwide. Chris accomplished this goal without a sponsor, funding the trip out of pocket. His journey spanned 100 days -- from May 15 to Aug. 21 -- and he became the first man to Snapchat and live-stream in all 50 U.S. states. The journey was covered by more than 35 mainstream news outlets around the U.S., including FOX 5 New York, the Lowell Sun, 6ABC in Philadelphia and more. Following his trip, Chris moved to upstate N.Y. to write a book, "50 States, 100 Days: The Book," which is available now. Chris spoke twice at Summit Live 2016 in San Francisco (on a panel and solo; get the HQ streams here) about his innovative use of social media for social good, and completed a groundbreaking 50-day Snapchat project called #StrubSnapSwaps, which increased his Snapchat viewership by more than 600%. In 2016, Chris worked with Humana in Louisville, Ky., and traveled to the company's seven "Bold Goal" markets to work with community partners. In 2017, Chris launched 'I Am Here, LLC,' a social media consulting agency designed to help nonprofits around the U.S. Chris is a vocal advocate for Pay Away the Layaway, an organization that pays off layaway plans for needy families.
