My overall view on philanthropy is that it is for people who want to make a difference and help out others in need. It is a selfless act and is for people with a passion to make a difference. Today, I still see philanthropy the same, but after the field trip, I have a closer and more personal view of it and how big it is all around the world. On the field trip, two important things that happened was the speech and playing with the dog with three legs. It taught me valuable lessons that I will remember for a long time. When the guy gave the speech, it gave me a new perspective. I know that not everyone has it easy and the real world can be difficult at times and people do need help. I have also learned that in the fundraising process, it takes a lot of work to make money. Seeing every one fundraising and bringing money shows me that fundraising is difficult, yet important. Canning for Alzheimer’s New Jersey was difficult, yet I know that people do a lot more when it comes to raising money. I thought that the canning worked well. Something that I would have done differently is make it known that we were fundraising so that people could match our donations. I think that I will become involved in philanthropical efforts in the future because I think that it is important to give back to the community and see myself helping other people. Philanthropy is important to be involved in, ad everyone should give back at one point of their lives.
