Conversations lately seems like a dying art. No one wants to physically talk in-person anymore. More and more people, even children, toddlers, are on phones, tablets, or some kind of device. Even if you are able to start a conversation, the response is usually a short answer, which makes it hard to further carry the conversation. To help to get the world talkin’ again, David has created Chalkin Social.
What is Chalkin Social
Chalkin Social is a new way to get people talking to one another again. Basically, you wear trucker hat that has a mini chalkboard attached to it, you put any catch-phrase you want on the hat, a catch phrase that you know will ignite a conversation. When you walk around town or wherever you go, you will be sure to start a conversation with someone. It really is a fun and innovative way to get people talking to each other again in person.
The catch-phrase is very meaningful since any language throughout the world can be written on a chalkboard. Everyone can socialize more by Chalkin‘ Social.

About Chalkin Social
Chalkin‘ Social® was founded and invented in 2016 by David Schoonmaker, a 47-year old marketing professional. He realized he was socializing much less face to face and making less new friends each year. He would sit on flights and immediately put on headphones, take a cab to the airport and pray that the driver wouldnt get into a lengthy discussion, or sit at a bar and stare at his iPhone screen instead of conversing with others sitting just inches away.
David watched a Ted Talk presentation by Robert Waldinger called, ‘What Makes a Good Life?”, an ongoing 75-year Harvard study on adult development in which he concludes, “Socializing with friends, family, and the community makes people happier and healthier”. After just loving this presentation, David knew it was time for change, so, he created a prototype mesh trucker hat, with a small DIY chalkboard attached to the front, with “HELLO” written on it. He wandered around downtown Manhattan and realized people ‘got it’ right away and would smile and say “Hello!”, “Great idea!”, or “I miss meeting people!” The results were 100% magical.
David’s optimism and personal funding helped get 20,000 hats and accessories into production and also started the Chalkin‘ Social Foundation, which is a non-profit, 501(C)(3) corporation.
