By now there have been countless passionate and profound words written about the 2016 US Presidential Election, and we want to share some of them with you as well as create a space (in the comments section below) for you to share any that you find motivating, empowering, or healing.
It’s that time of the month again fellow Feelgooders. We just recently sent out our most recent Feelwhat?! newsletter and it is incredibly amazing. As you can probably guess, with the school year having just begun, Feelgood has been very busy. We recently expanded our Feelgood family having just welcomed new board committee members!
But that’s not all! Click here!! and come and take a look at what we have going on so far!
We are so excited for the upcoming year and cannot wait to see the enthusiasm, passion, and success that everyone will bring to Feelgood.
That’s it for now, Cheesy Humans, talk to you soon!!
As changemakers, we are all invested in this movement. The FeelGood movement. A movement that has empowered youth leaders across North America, which has resulted in more conversations and more actions toward reaching the goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030.
“Meeting Minutes” are blog articles that capture content from Town Halls, Live Labs, and other meetings across the FeelGood movement.
This edition of Meeting Minutes brought to you by Kate Mitchell, FeelGood’s Education Chair and UVM FeelGood Co-President

The movement-wide fundraising goal lives up to its nickname, the BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal), at least at UVM. It’s a big goal, a scary goal, an overwhelming goal: raise $150,000 in one year for the end of extreme poverty. It’s also a goal that doesn’t work without all of the FeelGood chapters, and the chapters can’t fundraise without dedicated leaders and volunteers
In our collective endeavor to raise $150,000 this academic year, chapters and alumni across the movement are taking their efforts to the land of social media and the interwebs by setting up online crowdfunding pages via the FeelGood website! If your chapter or yourself has not started doing this, we urge you to consider it!
This year’s Big Cheese was the third one that I have attended. I have had the privilege of attending all three (2012, 2013, 2015) as an alumna, but each took place during a different stage of my life.
The first year, 2012, I attended the Big Cheese as a logistics intern. Wanting to savor the last bit of FeelGood before joining the “adult world,” as my time as a FeelGood student was way too short, I spent the summer in Colorado with FeelGood staff and my fellow intern, Aidan Smith (Pitt ‘13), planning and executing the first Big Cheese held in Allenspark. It was one of the best summers of my life.
