LemonAID Warriors activates the next generation of change makers, one PhilanthroParty at a time.

Our LemonAid Warriors are making an impact by changing the way we party. In 5 years, we’ve raised over $80,000 for various causes and provided sustainable clean water solutions to almost 3,000 people in Africa. Our action plans have been downloaded over 165,000 times and inspired hundreds of PhilanthroParties worldwide. Check out this video to see us in action.

Meet Lulu.

When Lulu was 10, she learned that each cup of lemonade she sold for $1 can provide a person in Africa with clean drinking water for one whole year. Inspired by the power of even the smallest donation, she set up a Boys vs Girls LemonAID challenge for her fifth grade class.  They exceeded all expectations by raising $4,000 and had so much fun doing it that her classmates didn't want to stop. So she founded LemonAID Warriors to share creative action plans and provide PhilanthroParty Planning advice to make social activism a part of her generation's social life. 

Six years later, LemonAID Warriors has raised over $100,000, provided clean water for thousands of people in Africa. Lulu's PhilanthroParty campaigns have inspired over 4.2 million people to take action with her. She especially loves to mentor other young Warriors to launch their very own charity projects.  As a Global Youth Ambassador for A World At School, her recent advocacy efforts supporting equal access to safe education have been highlighted during the United Nation's General Assembly at a historic Town Hall event. Learn about Lulu's passion for education on this KTLA Morning Show interview!


Throw a philanthroparty to give your event a purpose.  Add a creative twist to any gathering to make giving part of the fun.


Step 1: 

PIck a cause

What cause speaks to your heart? What do you want to fix? It might be in your community, or it might be on the other side of the world. Big or small, it all matters. Especially if it matters to you. 

Step 2:

Pick a date

Look at your calendar. Turn something you’re already planning into a chance to help your cause. Birthdays, sports events, holidays, or even a simple Saturday afternoon with friends can be transformed for ultimate social impact.


Step 3:

Pick an activity

Be inspired by the theme of your chosen charity! Plan activities, recipes, and decorations that relate to the cause. If you love animals and you're having a pool party, have guests bring in old towels to donate to shelters and bake doggie treats! Check out this DIY video!


What are we up to lately? 

This was our second trip to Mexico to visit the orphanage we help support, lead by Warrior Nicholas and his recently launched organization Friends Helping Others. We gave the staff the day off and entertained the kids, served lunch and then we were treated with a dance show. Here's a video of our first trip!

So many loyal LemonAID Warriors helped me share the #UpForSchool petition at schools, rock concerts, conferences and events.  It all lead up to co-hosting a historic Town Hall event.  I handed off the petition with 10 MILLION signatures to United Nations leaders during the General Assembly. Your voices demanding global access to education were heard by the most powerful leaders in the world!  Special thanks also to my co-host Rainn Wilson for having my back onstage, and to Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi for hand delivering my personal plea to the UN.

Our Superbowl PhilanthroParty had something for everyone. There was the game, of course. And for the non-football-fans, we set up Valentines Card-Making table and scored 1,736 love notes for Meals On Wheels to deliver to house-bound seniors on Valentines Day.

Dynamic Duo.

This brother and sister team were inspired by Warrior Madi's successful Believe Bracelet project. They recently launched their own service project that gives comfort and love to shelter dogs through blanket donations.  These are 2nd generation Warriors! We mentored Madi and she mentored these next-generation social-good Warriors. Generosity and compassion are contagious!
