Feeling Cynical? Not With These Girls on Our Side!

When the next cynical curmudgeon says, “This generation of kids is so self-absorbed—with their noses stuck in their electronics—the future of our country is doomed,” remember Sarah Gilman and Anne Marquardt. With these young philanthropists leading the way, we’re pretty confident the future looks really, really good. A neighbor of Anne’s had breast cancer. This [...]
