Hi. My name is Maddie. This summer, I want to make money to make three wells.
A video of Maddie's last lemonade stand. She had a friend, Camila, helping out and they made cupcakes too! Her friend's dad made this video of the girls: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29vi6qMdU2w
"I would love if you could tell your friends that you can come to the lemonade stand and it's name is Thirst. I can already help 6 people after 3 days of lemonade stands and I would love some help with that. It's going to be good. I hope your friends will like it. And the 6 people are saying Thank You for all the people who have helped. Thank you. You can see on my twitter when the lemonade stand is and lots and lots of pictures. You can follow me on twitter @maddieyvr"
Madison is an incredibly passionate and empathetic little girl. We started sponsoring a little girl in Mozambique when Madison was 3 and she has always been concerned about why some people have more than others. When she lost her first tooth, her dad and I joked that it doesn't matter how much money the tooth fairy gives her because she is just going to give it away.
When she wanted a lemonade stand this summer, we looked at quite a few charities that we could give to. It was the video about the water crisis that convinced her that Charity:Water was the one. This didn't surprise me because when they were learning about Africa at school, she was asking her teacher why the moms and girls had to go get water instead of the boys, rather than wanting to learn about the cool animals!
This is a girl with a huge heart (yes.. I'm a biased mom!) who originally set her goal to provide water to 1000 people this summer. I had to talk her down from that because $20,000 is A LOT of money. Our current goal is $5000 and we have a lemonade stand once or twice a week at Grandview park in Vancouver BC Canada.

100% of the money raised by this campaign is being used to bring clean water to help those in need. In 21 months we’ll be able to show you exactly where the money went and who it helped.
