Philanthropy means the love of mankind and can be expressed daily in many ways. Our goal is to publish stories of good deeds done by kids. Philanthropy can be something simple like helping someone cross the street or finding a lost cat and returning it to its owner, or something big like saving someone from a fire or participating in a fund-raiser to help sick kids.
General guidelines about the submissions:
- It can be about ANYTHING. Philanthropy can never be too big or too small. If you’ve ever cared about someone and done something about it, write about it and send it in.
- Submissions are open for all youth below the age of 21.
- Parents, please don’t write the story for your child. We want the story to be as directly from the kid’s heart as it can be. But that doesn’t mean you can’t sit down and talk about it with your kid.
- Stories should not be longer than 250 words. Keep it short and sweet.
- We love pictures, so send us any that you have of you. They can be of you in action or a simple headshot.
If you have any questions about your submission, don’t hesitate to contact us at philanthropykids.org/contact-us
By submitting a story, you grant Philanthropy Kids permission to use your story and pictures in our various outlets including print publications, digital and social media, and email newsletters as well as any promotional materials.
