Students will make a multi-media presentation in a clear, meaningful way that educates peers, educators, parents, and community members about the issue and non-profit organization that they studied and their philanthropic work which addressed that problem.

After researching the life and work of a chosen philanthropist from history, the learner takes on the role of that philanthropist in writing a letter to the learner. In this letter, the philanthropist discusses his/her motivations and feelings about his/her work, and compares and contrasts his/her work with the philanthropic work of the learner. The learner also prepares his/her previously created visual presentation and the two letters s/he has written for public display.
