We’ve done so much in these last two years. Check it out!

The Experiment

First, our biggest accomplishment was this Experiment we started in June 2020. We started hoping to maybe have 200 participants and ended up with 5500 participants from all over the world who said, “yes!” and took our pre-survey to join the experiment. That blew our minds and made us soooooo excited! Participants even asked for more once we were were done with the 21 days, which encouraged us to host a 2nd Experiment in October 2020 with all new plans. And leads us to…what did we learn from all this wonderful participation?

The Results

What did we learn indeed?!?! Does connecting with your family past and present for as little as 5 minutes a day really improve your mood? We gathered the results from our pre and post survey and even made them into some pretty graphics. You can see what we learned on the Experiment Results Page (click the button right below here 😉).  

Social Media

We’ve run the experiment and connected on Social Media:
  • 738 posts and 1445 Instagram followers
  • 1721 Facebook followers
  • 2.9k members of our Facebook Group
  • 497 Twitter followers

Interviews

We hosted over 150+ interviews. You can find them on: YouTube  |  Facebook  |  Twitter @21DayConnect

Connection Plans

We created 21 different Connection Plans, not including our library of Community Created Plans.

Products

We created 14+ products to go along with the plan. (we even have freebies for you to try out!)

RootsTech

We hosted an entire track at RootsTech 2021 & 2022. (This is a BIG DEAL!!) Our track was called the Power of Connection. If you haven’t seen it, you should go check it out and if you did see it, you should go watch it again because it’s that good!

Connection Tools

And not to be forgotten, we’ve created Connection Tools (games to connect), blog posts, Memes (it allows you to make your own memes) and a million daily email reminders, graphics and more.

Volunteer & Participant Hours

+15,000,000 hours of volunteer & participant contributions. 😉

And we've loved every minute!

 And we’ve loved every minute! Connecting with you over the past 2 years has been a pleasure, we hope to do it again in the future.  (Insert favorite WINK FACE)

What's next?

We want to keep our resources available as long as possible, and will continue to do so while the funds last. Our products and digital downloads will also remain available through the end of the year, these funds will be used to support the website, so be sure to grab them soon.
