MLK Day at The Buckley School

To honor Dr. King, my Day of Service is being spent with The Buckley School's K - 5th grade Warriors!  I'm sharing LemonAID Warrior's PhilanthroParty action plans and talking about my passion for our friends in Africa.  Check out our art project  I'm using these photos and videos to tell my story

Birthday PhilanthroParties are LemonAID Warrior's most popular events.  Ask for donations instead of presents or choose a party theme around a cause you love.  If you love puppies, have animal cake and decorations and ask for old towels and blankets to donate to shelters to keep the dogs warm.  If you love football, then maybe you can play flag football at your party, and  ask your guests to bring sports shoes or cleats they have grown out of to donate to a boys shelter where they always need athletic gear.  Guest can choose to spend the money they would have on your present and take that same money and make a donation to the boys shelter or the animal shelter instead.

Here is my annual Water Walk Birthday PhilanthroParty.  I'm 14 and this will be my 4th one. Its so much fun.  We have a huge party after our water walk and I ask for donations instead of presents.

 

PhilanthroParties don't have to be about raising money.  There are skills you have that are really valuable that can help a lot of people.  For example, here are some warriors who love to sing.  So they practice 5 songs and then we visit senior homes and sing for old people who dont get a lot of visitors.  Then we stay for tea and snacks and have a visit.

This is Wyatt.  He loves art.  At summer camp he and his friends wrote a story and  drew pictures about how the trash monster is ruining the ocean.  Then they made a book about it and a claymation movie.  The book is now at his school library, where kids can learn about saving the ocean.  He also sells it and has raised $6000.00. And his movie is shown on youtube and in schools to spread awareness for his passion which is the ocean.

Below was just a summer day when we were bored so we turned it into a little philanthroparty.  We went to the animal shelter, gave some love to some animals and then took photos of the animals and learned how to network them on facebook to try to find them homes.  My friend Mike filmed it and one day I want to make a movie about it,like Wyatt did.  To show kids how they can help animals.
