For the Love of Lemonade

On Sunday, the Love146 Taskforce
at the Blue Route Vineyard Church in PA rolled up their sleeves and squeezed, squeezed, squeezed the love out of lemons for yummy lemonade! Their lemonade stand raised $75.

Kudos to Kate and Sue and everyone who helped to raise awareness and funds so sweetly! And a special thanks to Sammy, Ben, Joseph, Emma, and the rest of the kids who have already chosen to use their energy to be a voice for the children we serve.

So often I am told that children are too young to be told about human trafficking and modern day slavery; however there are age-appropriate ways to inform children about the issues that affect children that are the same age as they are. And when children are informed - they are moved to act.

Thanks so much for sharing this inspiring story.

That's so true Carol!

I remember, when I was only 6 years old, my mother was telling me about Unicef and the plight of many children in the world, and even at that young age, it opened my eyes a bit more and every since I have had children in the world on my heart and mind. It can affect children from a young age, and such a concern and desire to help others can stick to you for life. It doesn't necessarily go into one ear out of the other. Just because a child might be too young doesn't mean they won't understand nor care. They can care, and it can stir up a passion to do something about it that can stick with them for life :).
