Giving spirit blossoms

Giving spirit blossoms: For most youngsters, charitable giving is not high on their list of priorities. However, sisters Emily and Megan Stokke don't fit into the category of "most youngsters."

Megan, for example, requested a donation on her behalf to the World Wildlife Fund for her eighth birthday, a rarity at that age.

"I love animals, and I don't want them to die," she explains of her request.

Now, these girls are on a mission to raise $1,000 to give to the Rotary Foundation. The foundation is a body within Rotary International that spearheads international projects dealing with health, education and the alleviation of poverty.
