LemonAID Warriors activates the next generation of Leaders, one PhilanthroParty Event at a time.

 

Our LemonAid Warriors are making an impact by making social activism a part of our social lives.  In 7 years, our PhilanthroParty Planning Guides have helped raise over $100,000 for local and global causes and inspired over 4000 hours of volunteer service. Our action plans have been downloaded over 165,000 times and inspired hundreds of PhilanthroParty events 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 life saving 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 Guides to make social activism a part of her generation's social life. 

Seven years later, LemonAID Warriors has raised over $100,000, provided clean water for thousands of people in Africa, sent hundreds of children to school, and supported dozens of other local and global charities. Lulu's PhilanthroParty Campaigns have reached over 4.2 million people through her partnership with corporations like Mattel. 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 Sustainable Development Summitt where she co-hosted a historic Town Hall event. Learn about Lulu's passion for education on this KTLA Morning Show interview!

 

This 3-step philanthroparty guide gets you started.  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? 

On February 18th, a team of Warriors, led by Nicholas Y and Jasper C will be heading to Tijuana to finish building a dorm that will house 34 children in an over-crowded orphanage.  We have been hosting bus trips to this orphanage to play with the kids, and give the staff a day off, but these boys wanted to do more. They have already raised $8,000.00 through bake sales, restaurant partnerships and they teamed up with Canadian warrior Avery G. and his siblings who raised $2,000.00 selling roasted corn from their farm. Please consider making a tax deductible donation on our donation icon. Specify this project to help the boys reach their goal. 

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 Sustainable Development Summit. 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 making me feel comfortable onstage, and to Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi for hand delivering my personal plea to the Unite Nations world leaders.

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!
