Holy moly! This past summer has been quite the ride. To summarize, a five year old spearheaded a movement of peace and love and has raised over $26,000 for Planting Peace since June 14th. This was all done from three lemonade stands...by a FIVE YEAR OLD! Beyond this adventure, we completed the construction of our clean-water well in South Sudan. The well is fully operational now, and serves 1,000 people who otherwise would not have access to clean-water. And finally in late June, Jon was honored by his hometown Kansas City Royals. The Royals presented Jon with the honor of sitting in the Buck O'Neil Legacy Seat, which honors members of the community for their humanitarian work, and/or community service. So THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us in one way or another.
The actual water well we funded, and the children it serves.
So, what's next? We are going to sell some of our art! FRESHCASSETTE artist Carly DelFavero, painted four pieces this summer which were inspired by Jayden's lemonade stands. We are selling the ORIGINAL 30 x 22 inch paintings. This is a great opportunity to own some great paintings, while also helping others. Did we mention we are donating 100% of the proceeds to our Planting Peace fundraiser? That's right...get on it!
