Tomorrow’s philanthropists took their first steps this summer at Camp Give. The day camp run by Magnified Giving is a week-long event designed to educate, inspire and engage children in philanthropy.

Terence Daniels decided to volunteer as a Big Brother mentor because, he says, “I live by the idea of wanting this world to be a better place because I was in it. I wasn’t sure if I had what it takes to be a ‘Big,’ but I knew I could share my story and some of the lessons I’ve learned and pass them on.” His strategy worked. At this summer’s National Big Brothers Big Sisters gala in San Diego, he was named National Big Brother of the Year.
