Today I gave a presentation about philanthropy to a group of 7-8 year-old girl scouts. It was great fun and my 11 year-old daughter helped out. She took notes for me, recorded interesting quotes, and got me materials I needed.
It was a great experience and I’ll tell you why:
- These girls had fantastic ideas and a great attitude
- It gave me a chance to articulate and test drive some of my teaching tips about philanthropy
- I loved being there with my daughter doing stuff where I was truly in my “element”
- I really feel like these kids “got it” and learned some new ideas about ways to give back
Stay tuned for an in-depth article about the details of that event.
(I apologize for the brevity of my posts. I really want to get back into posting more regularly, but find I am stretched pretty thin these days.)
