About the author (2006)

At age 14, Freddi Zeiler decided she wanted to make a difference in the world. There were so many charitable organizations to choose from that she didn't know where to start--so she decided to research them all. To make it easier for other children to make a difference and get involved, Freddi has broken down her findings in A Kid's Guide to Giving, an accessible guide to giving money and time, donating goods, and organizing charity events.
