Pick a Cause

What cause speaks to your heart? What do you want to fix? It might be in your community, or it might be on the other side of the world. Big or small, it all matters. Especially if it matters to you.

Pick a Date

Look at your calendar. Turn something you’re already planning into a chance to help your cause. Birthdays, sports events, holidays, or even a simple Saturday afternoon with friends can be transformed for ultimate social impact.

Pick an Activity

Be inspired by the theme of your chosen charity! Plan activities, recipes, and decorations that relate to the cause. If you love animals and you're having a pool party, have guests bring in old towels to donate to shelters and bake doggie treats!

About the Author

As a young girl, Lulu was frustrated by the lack of volunteer opportunities for children. She began hosting her own social-good get-togethers that involved selling lemonade for charity. In 2010, one of these gatherings raised $4,000.00 to help the earthquake victims in Haiti. Empowered by this success, her friends begged her to host more events. So, Lulu created many more PhilanthroParty action plans, and as a result, her youth activism organization LemonAID Warriors was born. LemonAID Warriors has since raised over $120,000, provided clean water for thousands of people in Sub-Saharan Africa, sent hundreds of children to school, and supported dozens of other local and global charities. Lulu's online PhilanthroParty Campaigns have so far reached over 4.2 million people. Lulu's speaks about activism and holds workshops across the country. She strongly believes in her generation's ability to conquer the challenges that face our world today.
