Hi I’m Margot! I am a junior at Ingraham High School and a part of the Giving Initiative for Teens (GIFT). GIFT is a teen-philanthropy boardard working to address the issues of homelessness and poverty, guided by the Jewish values of responsibility, pursuit of peace, and sustainability.
In Washington state, 30 people out of 10,000 are homeless. In Seattle alone, the issues of homeslessness and poverty are ever prevalent and it motivates me to make a diffference in my community.
