Last year, Sam, an 11-yr old boy from the Cincinnati, OH area, dedicated his birthday to support the children of La Limonada. He asked his friends to make donations to Lemonade International instead of giving him gifts. For his 11th birthday, he and his friends raised $360!
Sam’s sister, Olivia was also inspired to raise money for her birthday party last year… and she and her friends raised $239!
Well, this year came along and Sam was about to turn 12. He decided to challenge his friends again – utilizing his birthday to encourage them to make donations to support the children at the “Mi Casita” Safe Home instead of giving him gifts.
He invited his friends to his birthday party and 33 boys were there to celebrate with pizza, basketball and a lot of fun. Together they raised $714 to support orphaned, abused, abandoned, and neglected children from La Limonada!
Sam, thanks to you and your friends for your amazing generosity. You inspire us and you inspire others through your selfless actions!
