Making a difference at a young age

Learn more about three of our youngest donors and how they are making difference and inspiring others.

  • Pennies for Penguins. Zachary Touger helped raise attention for the endangered Galápagos penguins during his TedxYouth talk and runs an annual Pennies for Penguins campaign, raising more than $1,000 to help the Galápagos penguins.
  • It’s never too early to start giving. After a school lesson on compassion, Viola Miller broke open her piggy bank, and crayons, to help the penguins.
  • Recipient of the 2013 “Outstanding Youth Achievement Award” continues giving. Her 2013 fundraising event for the penguins of the Indianapolis zoo wasn’t the last event for the young philanthropist. After hosting a successful 2017 fundraiser, Lauren Harmon helped raise over $1,600 to help support our penguin research.
