Wherein a bookworm and activist in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, missing friends and craving connection, created an online trivia game in March 2020. That small spark blossomed into a weekly gathering, which has raised $50,000 for non-profits to date. Join us as we continue to spark joy and build community.
