Yoli is a single mother to three girls, and has raised a boy as her own since he was three months old. When she first met Tita 11 years ago, Yoli was working at a pizzeria near La Limonada. A woman who lived next door to the pizzeria started taking Yoli’s three daughters to a […]

New Website & The May Campaign

Thanks to countless volunteer hours from Todd Hiestand and Nathalie Szejner, and many long days and late nights for Rebecca, Cherie and me, our new website is live. We’re not only excited about the new “look” of our site (although we do think it looks great), we believe it’s cleaner and easier to navigate. Most […]

Meet Edgar

Meet Edgar. He’s been working with the children at Escuelita Limon for 2 months now. Without pay. When asked why he was working at the school, he responded “I am working here to serve.” His entire life has been spent receiving from other people and now, he feels, is his time to give back.

That We May Become Like Children

Meet Moshi. The youngest son of Tita, he is 10 years old and is also a recipient of a private school scholarship through Lemonade International.
