When Lulu was 10, she learned that each cup of lemonade she sold for $1 can provide a person in Africa with clean drinking water for one whole year. Inspired by the life saving power of even the smallest donation, she set up a Boys vs Girls LemonAID challenge for her fifth grade class. They exceeded all expectations by raising $4,000 and had so much fun doing it that her classmates didn’t want to stop. So she founded LemonAID Warriors to share creative action plans and provide PhilanthroParty Planning Guides to make social activism a part of her generation’s social life.
Seven years later, LemonAID Warriors has raised over $100,000, provided clean water for thousands of people in Africa, sent hundreds of children to school, and supported dozens of other local and global charities. Lulu’s PhilanthroParty Campaigns have reached over 4.2 million people through her partnership with corporations like Mattel. She especially loves to mentor other young Warriors to launch their very own charity projects. As a Global Youth Ambassador for A World At School, her recent advocacy efforts supporting equal access to safe education have been highlighted during the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Summitt where she co-hosted a historic Town Hall event.
