At last count, Chicago was home to 2.7 million people. That’s 2.7 million viewpoints, a multitude of perspectives, and immeasurable stories. Chicago’s one city but is seen in many different ways. It spurs dreams, pride, and challenges.

This is exactly why Chicago Cares exists. We unite and ignite people through action. We amplify and expand perspectives. We expose our volunteers to issues and places they might not otherwise come across. We elevate stories and weave narratives.

My Chicago is your Chicago is our Chicago. And, with Serve-a-thon just over a month away, we want to celebrate what makes our dynamic and diverse city what it is. So we’re asking you, Chicaogoans, what does your Chicago mean to you? Tell us with the hasthtag #MyChi through words, photos, and videos on social media!
