Week 2

I learned that in our group we have a lot of people who feel that family is important to them. I also learned that not only is my group similar, but so are my classmates and I. We all learned something about each other and what we value.

Our team is going to be fundraising to children in need and terminally ill children. We have decided that we would be interested in donating to Make a Wish foundation and possibly more of a small organization around the area.

When I told three people about Main Street Philanthropy they all roughly had the same response. Most responded with that it seemed interesting and it was great experience for high schoolers could take on a bigger role in the community and help others in a variety of ways. My mom is the one who had said the most about it; saying it was a great experience and that teaching people leadership skills and to give back at a young age is a great opportunity for them to reflect on and use in the future.

Week One: Alexandria Durn

I found the MAD cards to be a little difficult. It was challenging because I realized how many there was to choose from because there is so much going on in this world. I thought it was more difficult to narrow down my top three in the order i thought was most important because those were the ones that i cared about the most. I felt the most passionate about those so i found it more difficult to order them 1-3 because they were all very important to me. By participating in MSP i hope to gain more leadership skills. I also hope to make a difference and help people who need it. I want to realize and look/learn more in depth on how my life could be a lot worse and i should be grateful for what i have.
