Three years ago, I was a graduate student in Missouri, and I was bracing myself for an impending snowstorm — something that is a rarity in my home state of Oklahoma.

A couple days later, I found myself struggling to get home in six inches of snow.
This past October, Brett Hagler won the hearts of our Luxury Connect attendees and Inman readership with his non-profit, New Story. In the course of a few days, we were able to raise $18,000 to help New Story continue their work of helping families on the brink of homelessness in Haiti.
Today, December 7, at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET, we’re hosting a Facebook Chat with Brett Hagler of New Story Charity. Faithful Inman readers and Connect attendees may remember Hagler from our Luxury Connect conference in Beverly Hills this past October. Hagler’s mission captured the hearts of our attendees, and we raised $18,000 to help build homes for Haitian families.
