In celebration of #GivingTuesday, local elementary school children took part in an exercise designed by the Central New York Community Foundation to introduce them to the concept of philanthropy and giving back, both within their communities in the form of charity and between one another through acts of kindness. The children were asked to draw a picture demonstrating how they want to make a difference, and the results were fun and heartwarming. Below, browse some of the inspiring messages our local young people created.
