Achieving important goals in life is directly affected by character. It's at least equal in power to intelligence. Whether referring to academic excellence in school, or healthy friendships, character traits play a major role in the decisions children make, how they relate to others and the way people respond to them. Building character involves understanding and acting upon core ethical values. Children grow to encompass these values by hearing inspirational stories, developing empathy, communicating their feelings and helping to create community by forming caring relationships.
Glitter Lemonade is a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation sponsoring altruistic efforts by children, that benefit charities and champion causes in the spirit of goodwill; each effort is an exercise in civic virtue. Our philosophy is simple and purposeful: integrate philanthropy into early childhood, so a connection will be made between community service and self enrichment. We are not simply about being charitable, but rather about helping children recognize needs and injustices in our world and mobilizing them to respond through giving, volunteerism and activism. Glitter Lemonade is dedicated to partnering with parents, teachers and youth advisers to empower a new generation of philanthropic and engaged members of society, by striving to nurture social responsibility in developmental years.
At Home: Children need many and varied opportunities for self awareness and respect for others, along with a strong work ethic and perseverance. They're constructive learners-they learn best by doing. Glitter Lemonade offers children a glimpse of the world though the eyes of others, by customizing creative and kid-friendly activities and campaigns empowering them to make a difference. Through at home discussion, parents help children identify charities, community services and families in need they feel passionate about. Philanthropic goals can be as personal or as global as they wish. Glitter Lemonade then spotlights the child's cause by sponsoring an online fundraiser through our website. We provide a platform for them to raise money and spread the word about their mission. Glitter Lemonade campaigns and parties are a great way to honor a child's birthday or special occasion!
At School And Camp: With an adult adviser providing insight through education, Glitter Lemonade Club members generate service ideas and implement meaningful hands-on projects that impact their world. Clubs are geared toward elementary and middle aged children and are an innovative way for schools and camps to incorporate philanthropy into their core programs and curriculum. Advisers lead meetings on a regular basis giving students and campers the opportunity to identify issues that are important to them and develop initiatives that effect positive change through collaboration.
In our Community: Children have purchasing power, so let's teach them young to use it wisely. Glitter Lemonade is committed to inspiring entrepreneurship and changing the way our future leaders view Big Business. Children are encouraged to create their own products and use our website as a fundraising platform, by designating a portion of their proceeds to a charity of their choice. We welcome partnerships with companies who value charitable giving as a key component of their business models, supporting our mission to educate the next generation about brands and products which benefit the greater good.
