In an effort to try and save my business but also give back to those who deserve it most, I created a campaign. You can donate a tour to essentials workers who are putting their lives on the line for us.
Once I am able to host small group tours, I will invite essential workers for a 'staycation experience' in Chicago. You will receive pictures and/or video of the tour you paid for.
Thank you, stay safe and stay healthy.
With love, Leentje
Thank you to all those who already donated a tour to one of our many healthcare workers and first responders.
Please keep on spreading the word to help them out and keep my business afloat.
THANK YOU 🙏 MERCI 🙏 DANKU
After reporter Leentje De Leeuw interviewed a man in Chicago who was originally from her Belgian hometown of Sint-Amands, the brief encounter lingered in both their minds. They decided to stay in touch and soon fell in love.
Not only had Leentje fallen in love with the man, she was also smitten with the city. In September 2014, after many transatlantic flights, Leentje moved to the Windy City.
In 2015 she decided to combine her passion for the city with her experience in travel and media : Chica-GO was born!
