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 clean water to almost 3,000 Africans. Our action plans have been downloaded over 165,000 times and inspired hundreds of PhilanthroParties worldwide.

 

Sign-up below for the tips and tools to throw your own PhilantroParty!

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. 

Five years later, LemonAID Warriors has raised around $80,000 and 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.

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, it might be on the other side of the world. Big or small, it all matters. Especially if it matters to you.  Here's a video about my passion cause and a Water Walk PhilanthroParty I hosted.

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, even a simple Saturday afternoon with friends can be transformed for ultimate social impact. Like this one for dog lovers! Super easy.

Step 3:

Pick a Talent

Your interests and talents are your best tools to fix the problems you want to tackle. Athletes, musicians, artists, gamers, book lovers all make awesome Warriors. Watch these Warriors turn their talent for DIY crafting and nail art into a Spa PhilanthroParty to help the homeless. 

What are we up to lately? 

This Saturday is our 3rd annual LemonAID Stand for  Sugar and Stilettos Event. Los Angeles' finest bakers donate their yummiest sweets.  Comedian Richard Lewis, Stephen Weber and the master builder of our Extreme LemonAID Stand, Paul Di Meo of Extreme Makeover Home Addition and Building Wild return to pass on their tiaras, sashes and stilettos and crown the next Mr. Sugar and Stiletto 2015. $60,000 has been raised by this backyard event and helps stock local food banks. It's our favorite LemonAID Stand of the year!
