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? This is how one well in Sudan came to be.

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.org

I can assure you every cent of your donation will go towards this project, One Well in Sudan, 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 as they raise money for one well in Sudan. 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!

    • Way to go Jeremy and Kai ! We are all very proud of you boys and of all our kids !! And thank you Jacqueline for posting and sharing the story as well. CP Mama Lori
