Our friend, Victoria, heard about Lemon:Aid on the radio, and decided she wanted to help people in Africa like her pen-pal, Petronious! After a late night building the stand and a hot Friday selling lemonade, she not only reached her fundraising goal of $100, but she exceeded it with the help of a generous matching donor. This same donor is matching all Lemon:Aid donations!
We love our fundraisers, but we think kids who use their creativity for a greater cause are extra special. In Matthew 18:2, Jesus says that to enter the kingdom of heaven, we must “become like little children.” Children understand with simple faith the need to help and love others. Thank you for allowing your kids to be a part of the Blood:Water story and making a difference for our friends in Africa.
If your child is interested in creating a Lemon:Aid stand, there is still time! As summer winds down and the temperatures are rising, why not quench the thirst of your community and a community in Africa? Order your kit at bloodwater.org/lemonaid!
