Philanthropy makes it possible to change the world with what you love!

A lot of things we enjoy and participate in are possible because of philanthropy. Cool museums? Yep. School fundraisers? For sure! Even this book exists because of philanthropy! Philanthropy looks a lot of different ways, and at its core, it’s about combining things you care about with things you’re good at to change the world. Yes, YOU. And, you can start today; open this book to learn how!

Jeunai Emery (she/her) wants every kid to know that they can make a difference. She hopes to inspire kids (and grownups!) to combine what they care about with what they love to do to help make the world a better place for everyone.

I love this book and it's just in time for the holidays! Our family has a tradition of going to the grocery store and buying food items to donate to a local food bank, as well as shopping for toys for other kiddos. This is the perfect addition to our bookshelf to continue to instill a sense of giving back for our kids. Thank you for creating this engaging and colorful way for kids to think through contributing to others!

A perfect entry point for the youngest generation to learn about how they can make the world a better place. The author does a great job of presenting the concept of philanthropy in a digestible and conversation-sparking format. As a philanthropy professional and parent, I can't wait to read this book to my kids for many years to come so they can realize how huge of an impact they can have on the world.

A Kids Book About Philanthropy is a well executed book that deep dives into helping kids understand a very important part of society. Jeunai uses excellent real world examples to show kids that it is possible for them to make a difference. This book is very empowering for our future leaders and I am excited to share it with other educators!


As a parent of two little ones it is great to find books that simplify complex topics and show how to connect learnings to action. For kids, and honestly even for adults, it is easy to view Philanthropy through the narrow lens of monetary contributions, leaving little room for kids to connect the concept to their own lives and the world around them. I appreciate that this book broadens the idea and inspires confidence that everyone can participate in Philanthropy and that participation is important to building a better world.

As Jeunai says in this beautiful book, kids are powerful, and my kids have a ton of energy right now to do good about all the hard things they are seeing in the world. Thank you for making a big word like Philanthropy accessible enough for us to take action on it. We love this book.
