NEWS BRIEFS All of the Camp Giving participants and their parents gather with the Southeastern Guide Dogs, handlers and volunteers. Photos by Community Foundation of Sarasota County/Sharon Kunkel 'CAMP GIVING' HELD TO INSPIRE YOUNG PHILANTHROPISTS On Saturday, Nov. 17, Community Foundation of Sarasota County hosted "Camp Giving," a program for children ages 8-12 and their parents, to inspire the next generation of philanthropists. Nearly a dozen children attended; they learned about the value of "giving back," discovered how to use the online nonprofit resource "Giving Partner" to find causes they care about, heard from a high school volunteer and enjoyed a presentation by Southeastern Guide Dogs staff and volunteers, a news release says. At the conclusion of the program, each of the young participants received a "Moon Jar," which is designed to help children make decisions about saving, spending and sharing. Every young person also received a $25 "Giving Spirit Card," which can be donated to any charity of his or her choosing.
