CHARITY CHAMPS

 

Our grandparent generation remembers
life in poverty and ruins.

Today’s youth can imagine what that means. And they don’t sit idle. 

Here’s what young people are doing to boost creativity, community and cooperation.

PHILANTHRO-PARTY

HOW ABOUT YOU START WITH KID STUFF? BUT – FOR REAL!

LULU’S 1ST LEMONAID STAND

Can you resist to buy fairy juice?

What do you do when you hear of water crisis in African villages?

Set up a LemonAID Stand?

Yes. But you can also spontaneously call out a Water War and challenge the boys! Who will raise more money, girls or boys? 400 stands popped up from coast to coast, raising a considerably higher amount!

Then, on your b’day, you do a Water Walk in town.

DOLLARS FOR CHARITY:WATER

WATER WALK

 

ON TV

because it’s lively, and media like to report on that

ON RADIO

because they have a message that people enjoy to hear

And thus LemonAID Warriors were born.

LemonAID Warriors is a youth activism organization that shares simple, realistic tools for children and teens to become effective agents of change in their communities. We recognize that kids and families are very busy, and it’s hard to imagine adding anything to our already crazy schedules. So our action plans aim to turn what is already on your calendar into opportunities to serve. We call this action plans “PhilanthroParties”.

To help young people everywhere activate their communities, Lulu has published a fireworks of ideas!
Should your public library, school and crew have one?
It’s so much fun to see our members who joined us as really young children grow into positions of responsibility.

Mentoring is my new favorite passion.

MENTORING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEMONAID WARRIORS

DON’T FORGET THE ICE-CREAM

As a youth-run organization, our ambitions are not always taken seriously. Our actions are often dismissed as symbolic gestures. But children and young people are capable of accomplishing enormous tangible good! We can have a profound impact on our local, national and global communities.

DOLLARS FOR SOCIAL GOOD

PEOPLE REACHED

LemonAID Warriors works to give young people tools and support to carry out these aspirations. But ideally, our schools and our entire society would also be on board.

WHY SHOULD CHANGEMAKERS ROUTINELY ENGAGE IN

CHARITY?

First of all, there is so much need in the world, and changemakers are part of the good guys.

They can use their reach, skills and community to achieve this better than a newbie. Next, there exist many swift, simple actions that generate huge impact without big effort. It’s easy to run them alongside one’s main mission.

There’s always opportunity to add charity to one’s activities.

No student club is a 24/7 operation. Only few initiatives are. And if it is, like for any athlete, it’s good to take a day off, to speak to people and to see results. It’s good for the Heart. And then, there’s a million benefits for one’s cause!

Book drives, LEGO drives, sandwich runs for the homeless… all these things

  • generate instant impact
  • gain universal appreciation
  • get community vividly involved
  • can set and reach milestones
  • tangible achievements
  • reason for celebration

more quickly than complicated, challenging causes that resonate only with a small percentage of the population, or is even perceived as disturbance by some or many.

Doing social good for many popular causes in multi-faceted ways is a powerful way to create friendly community.

Bright-spirited young changemakers can build on this friendly foundation for many other causes.

The point is – be childish.

Make it FUN!

FUNdraising

MULTIPLIES MOTIVATION, REACH AND IMPACT

Presence in Public

that is well received,

  • with meaning
  • with more than a leaflet
  • on countless causes
  • connecting with people of different interest
  • united by the vision for a good world

naturally generating

  • conversations
  • appreciation
  • support and ideas
  • allies and partners

Presence in Media

because they love positive people-powered solution stories for the betterment of our local and global communities

Presence at Schools

as you get invited as speaker and role model

  • a role model
  • presenting on a global issue
  • with a common sense proven solution
  • involving students

growing team, reach, impact, and cultivating changemaker spirit among youth at school.

It’s not hard work that people think twice to join. It’s fun, it’s PARTY, you’ll always have merry crew to join you at everybody’s fav place at school, and the best place to be on a saturday & sunday morning for fresh cookies and breakfast at the market. #AddMagicAdventure

THE EXPERIENCE, SKILLS AND COMMUNITY HELP THEM

RAISE FUNDS

for their own cause

Each sale on a normal school day makes $20-50. $100 a week is easy. Plus, there’s farmer’s markets.

1,000 #FridaysForFuture teams could make $100,000 per week, easily.

What for? Be imaginative. For climate mitigation projects abroad, for creating resilient regions, for own campaigns…
My favorite childhood memory is visiting my first Philanthroparty, a can carnival!
To get in, you had to bring cans to donate to the food bank.

At the event, we played many games related to cans, like a can stacking game or “can-can competition”. It was the first time that I was able to see the impact that the youth can have on our community and the world. While I was only in Kindergarten, this passion for activism continues to guide my decisions in life to this day.

If my generation is to face the great challenges we are about to inherit, service needs to be a bigger part of our education. It’s a challenge to get schools and larger institutions to step it up and make service and volunteerism a bigger priority. I wish there were more opportunities to support the next generation of compassionate leaders. While we are the future, we need to start acting now, rather than waiting until it is too late.

LULU’S UPCOMING BOOK #2

PHILANTHROPARTY 

SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Service Learning has many precious educational dimensions.

Howver, it is most powerful when organized by creative, fired up students that approach it with as much passion as their favorite sport or game,

  • during lunch break, recess, club time
  • at fests, as contribution to subjects
  • also after school
  • and on week-ends
  • with partners in the community

Lulu has years of experience of organizing activities at school and beyond, and many LemonAID Warriors are active at school pioneering ideas, and documenting process and impact.

We look forward to the book, since Lulu always surprises us with ideas beyond our imagination.

So, for now it’s all about your creativity.

Your childishness.
