No matter how old you are you can start your own water effect to bring clean water to kids and families! Host a lemonade stand this summer in your neighborhood, at your church, or at a local event or set up a virtual event to bring clean water to kids in Africa. We've got all the tools you need to be successful and have fun!
Choose to do a virtual or an actual lemonade stand. Either way, you’ll set up a fundraising page online—it’s super easy to do!
Step 1: Set up your fundraising page.
Step 2: Add your profile pic, write WHY you care about clean water, and set your fundraising goal.
Step 3: Share your fundraising page through social media and email. Ask people to visit your virtual lemonade stand and give to help people get clean water.
Step 1a: Set up your fundraising page.
Step 1b: Add your profile pic, write WHY you care about clean water, and set your fundraising goal.
Step 1c: Share your fundraising page through social media and email. Ask people to visit your lemonade stand and give to help people get clean water. People who don’t live close or can’t make it to your event can donate directly on your page!
Step 2: Pick a great location.
A busy street corner will help get lots of traffic to your stand, or you can host it right in front of your house. Local events, festivals, or your church are other great spots for your stand. Ask a parent to help you get adult approval if you need it.
Step 3: Make some tasty lemonade.
Buy your favorite lemonade mix or whip up a homemade batch. Here’s a basic recipe for two quarts (one pitcher):
• 1 cup lemon juice (about 6 large lemons)
• 1 cup sugar
• 7 cups water
As you mix the lemonade, think about children in Africa who do not have access to clean water. Your fundraising efforts will help people get clean water and improve their lives! Watch this video to get inspired.
Step 4: Print out materials for your lemonade stand. Check out our lemonade stand tool kit at the top of the page!
