Loyalist PR & National Philanthropy Day

When I had heard about National Philanthropy Day, I had no idea what I was.  Leading up to the day before I still didn’t know what the National Philanthropy Day or what Philanthropy even meant, so I turned to google and googled it.
I learned Wiki definition is; “Philanthropy is the effort or inclination to increase the well-being of humankind.”
That didn’t tell me much, I still didn’t understand what I would be doing the day of the event.
The day for Loyalist PR started early as we had to car pool to Kingston from our school in Belleville.  It had been down pouring all night, and on and off raining all morning, which didn’t make the drive any better or easier.  I do have to say I and Loyalist PR enjoyed the amazing day of speakers and networking.
To explain the event a little more it was about and sponsored by the AFP (Association of Fundraising Professionals).  AFP is a large group of people from all around the world, that network and discuss events and matters, which will help communities and people all around the world.
Loyalist PR assisted in many different roles, including students visiting the town the night before and helping set-up.  I had not much to do this day but networking, listening, and learning, as my job had already been completed.  Overall, I had a great day, heard some interesting stories and learned some good information.  Thank You AFP for the Invite.
