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.
- If you are 19 years old or younger, send us your story.
- 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.
- We like to put a 250 word limit on these stories, so keep it short and sweet.
- We love pictures, so send us any that you have of you.
If you have any questions about your submission, don’t hesitate to contact us at philanthropykids.org/contact-us
If your story is selected to be published in the magazine, you will be notified via email. Philanthropy Kids will hold a reception to honor all of the kids with published stories. There, you will get to meet other kids just like you whose selfless actions have helped other people.
We will be closing submissions for our next issue soon, so get writing today! Good luck with your submissions and if you have any questions please contact us.
