The Power of Youth Philanthropy
MAY 12, 2008
In a similar vein, two high school students in Massachusetts raised $420,000 to aid the people of Darfur. Nicholas D. Kristof writes in yesterday’s New York Times about how youth are rocking out with philanthropic endeavors. One New York high school student raised $57,000 to help build an elementary school in rural Cambodia. These “piggy-bank philanthropists,” as Mr. Kristof labels them, are inspiring. They demonstrate what creativity and drive can do to create real change in the world.
