In an article in Reuters titled, “Young Philanthropists Go High-Tech to Reach Lofty Giving Goals,” Lou Carlozo discusses how young philanthropists are tapping into social media and the internet to raise money for the causes they stand behind. Carlozo writes about Michael Greene, a 29 year old philanthropist who founded WorldPennyJar, a website that utilizes spare change from sales online to benefit the world when natural disaster strikes. The internet can be a great tool for finding causes to support and for raising awareness about your own personal fundraiser. Being a philanthropist in this day and age has never been easier and it’s exciting to see what good will come from all the tools at our disposal.
