Philanthro-teens delving into nonprofit world
Meet the teen philanthropists. Kids are mobilizing their peers to address everything from infant mortality in developing nations to neighborhood concerns. They're donating presents to charity and establishing their own nonprofits.
In the past year, 79% of girls in the U.S. have contributed food or clothing, 53% have given their own money, and 66% have asked family or friends to give or volunteer.
Today's teens also plan to be generous when they get older. More than 75% say they will regularly give to charity.
