I received a copy of “Philanthroparties, A Party Planning Guide for Kids Who Want to Give Back” ($17.99 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
When Lulu Cerone was 10-years-old her life was forever changed when she saw the horrible devastation from Haiti’s 2010 earthquake on the news. Living a comfortable existence in suburban Los Angeles, she felt that she had to do something to help. Her parents had always encouraged her to give back so she decided to organize a lemonade stand war between the boys and girls at her school. That initial event was a huge success raising $4,000 for the earthquake victims and was the social highlight of the year. From there, LemonAid Warriors was born. The non-profit organization uses ‘philanthroparties’ to raise money for a range of global organizations. To date over $100,000 has been raised.
