makes a difference in a child’s life.
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.

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”.

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
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!

for their own cause
1,000 #FridaysForFuture teams could make $100,000 per week, easily.
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.
Madi, LemonAID Warriors
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.
