LemonAid is very excited to announce our 2018 charities……New Moms and A House in Austin. Both are doing amazing work with families to interrupt the cycle of poverty.
New Moms is a place where young moms (24 and under) experiencing poverty and homelessness, can find hope and an opportunity to transform their future. newmoms.org/
A House in Austin believes every child, every family, in every zip code, deserves the same opportunities for high quality early learning experiences, nurturing support, and parent education. www.ahouseinaustin.org/
We are thrilled to present Kidz Express with a $36,000 donation to continue the excellent work they are doing for kids in the South Austin neighborhood. Today we joined their after school program where over 60 children gathered for dinner before heading home. We were so moved by a child who prayed for safety on the streets for himself, his family, his friends. Thank you to all who supported LemonAid and ultimately this deserving charity! ...

Having one news station cover LemonAid is pretty fun, but three?! Now that's really exciting, and so great for Kidz Express to get some wonderful publicity. Thank you to Jim Williams and CBS News for rounding out our coverage of the event.
We're proud of what LemonAid has become in our community, but to be included on ABC News' "Chicago Proud" segment was certainly sweet recognition. Thank you to Cheryl Burton and to the news crew who captured the essence of this event. ... See MoreSee Less
