Brendan Marrocco brings the charitable side of theCHIVE to global stage

time magazine Brendan Marrocco brings the charitable side of theCHIVE to global stage

By now most Americans have heard the story of Brendan Marrocco. The U.S. infantryman who lost all four limbs in a roadside bomb in Iraq recently received a rare and successful double arm transplant. As Brendan wheeled himself out to globally-televised press conference, you couldn’t help but notice the slogan on his shirt, ‘Keep Calm and Chive On.’

For all of us Chivers, it was a wink and a nod to the community he loves. But to those unfamiliar with theCHIVE, it raised the obvious question, “What is theCHIVE and why does this kid like it so much?” Our inbox is a whole mess’a media requests.

Time author Rebecca Nelson’s article not only reveals theCHIVE’s popularity amongst the military, but also explains how theCHIVE and Chive Charities, ‘has surprisingly noble side…. an online community that supports orphaned causes.’

Read the entire article RIGHT HERE.

And tune in later today, Chivers. The Chive community helped us do something very cool last week for one of our USAF Chivers. You’re not going to want to miss this.

    I have become so enthralled in Brendan's story. As a vet, a few of my good friends lost limbs or partial limbs, and see the progress of this surgery is incredibly encouraging.
