Day 235: Two Kids, One Lemonade Stand, One Well in Sudan. What Did Your Kids do This Weekend?

Share Happiness!

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs on our planet. We make decisions every day that we sometimes question. Are we feeding them the right food? Am I sending them to the right school? Am I teaching them things that will make them grow into a good person. I met two Mom’s, two kids and a school that is teaching their kids just that – to care, to support and to give. Could we ask anything more than that of our children? Day 235: Give 235 httpv:// Watch this video featuring to young students and their lemonade stand. Then read this is a letter I received in my inbox two days ago. You decide if you can just stand back and do nothing or if you will step up and support a school of children trying to make a difference.Hello Friends, I wish to share with you the journey that my darling boy Kai is taking with a small group of committed, compassionate children. The students of Cypress Park Primary (in West Vancouver, BC) are on a mission to build a water well in Sudan. They are coming up with all sorts of creative ways to raise funds. Their goal is to raise $8000 to create safe drinking water in a village in Sudan. Kai and his buddy Jeremy are selling lemonade this Saturday in Dundarave village from 12-2pm. If you are in the hood, please come enjoy a glass of lemonade by donation!If you would like to contribute further to the children’s efforts, please visit: www.obakkifoundation.orgI can assure you every cent of your donation will go towards this project that is deep in their hearts. The founder of the Obakki Foundation is a mom at our school and is responsible for building over 100 wells in Africa. Thanks from one proud mama! Sarah Mama of Kai, River & Juma Do I need to say more. This is the generation that is learning to give – right in school. It brings joy to my heart as I believe it will be the next generation that will change the world. Watch the video and let these two beautiful boys into your heart. If there was a day you wanted to give today is that day. Share this story, make a donation, tweet it, Facebook – let’s help these children realize their dream today. Let’s show them that we can come together to make their giving a life time experience they will always remember.Time Commitment: 5 minutesDonation: $20.00

My dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family we have come to learn through our own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.

    These boys shone while the sun did not. They raised over $300 in their efforts on Saturday. I am fiercely proud of them and am certain that compassion will take them far in life.

    • Wow big dollars! I know you also told me they have been collecting cans and taking them to the recycling depot for money and one of them emptied his piggy bank totally another $300. That piggy bank could have bought a lot of toys but instead he gave it up for a well in Africa. Way to go Mama Sarah! You done good!
