What began as a Lemon:Aid stand has blossomed into a family championing for Blood:Water. The Fritz family first began partnering with Blood:Water to quench the thirst of Africans by collecting money at a neighborhood Lemon:Aid stand. As awareness grew, so did the campaign. The Fritz family then partnered with Starbucks in Chicago to host a fundraiser for Blood:Water, raising more than $5,000. Then, around Christmas time the Fritz family rented some local retail space and sold handmade ornaments, wooden stars, and paintings, giving the proceeds to Blood:Water.
Tori Langley planned an evening of art and compassion. Local musicians and artisans came together on this special night to display their talents. The artisans donated dozens of hand crafted mugs which Tori then sold, giving 100 percent of the proceeds to our friends in Africa. The musicians provided the entertainment and music to make the evening that much more special.
Kelsea Little put together a musical benefit show, featuring local artists in San Diego, Cali. She charged $10 at the door and each artist performed a few songs and received some local exposure! By the end of the night, Kelsea had raised $1,000 for Blood:Water.
The saying “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can” speaks deep down into my soul as a mom of three.
Even if we have the desire to help, we're so busy. Where do we even start? Dave and I had this idea to collect our change to donate to Blood:Water and it was an extra bonus to be silly/creative as a family, too. Blood:Water was raising money for a clinic at Christmas time and we were so happy to raise enough money for two medical kits!
"We hope to do bigger things in the future, but at this moment we're starting where we are."
“Art Sale for Blood:Water” Josie painted some original art work, sold them and gave the proceeds to Blood:Water.
