Look! We’re launching a new blog series.
When I was nine or ten years old, I was introduced to “Kids For Saving The Earth.” My memories of this time involved my parents sending away for a workbook that explained how to start an after school club. While I can’t recall the details of what we did all of those days after school, I do remember helping rally my classmates, teachers and even the local media! to help us plant some trees along the perimeter of the school.
This was my first charitable experience. And I loved it. And while the yearning to be charitable, and to protect the environment, traveled along with me throughout my youth and into my adulthood, I didn’t really gather much more insight about the charitable world, much like most of my friends.
Until I started here at Chimp. All of a sudden, my eyes were opened wide. Each day, I seem to learn something valuable about the charity sector: from donating and fundraising to charitable law. It’s with this learning lens that I decided to share what I learn, in the hopes that it will help us all become more versed in an area that touches so many of us. I also hope that if you have questions, you’ll ask them here. And I’ll do my best to find the answers and opinions.
PS. In writing this post, I came across the Kids For Saving The Earth website. I think it’s pretty cool that they’re still working hard at supporting classroom education.
