Over 320 million Africans lack access to clean, safe water. Blood:Water Mission encourages kids to build a Lemon:Aid stand and quench the thirst of neighbors, and people half-way around the world as well.

Order a LEMON:AID Campaign Kit for just $10 and receive tools like posters, temporary tattoos and balloons, to help plan the best Lemon:Aid stand ever. See how many lives can be impacted in villages across Africa.

In many communities in Africa kids stay home instead of attending school or playing with their friends in order to walk a couple miles to retrieve water (which is often dirty and full of germs) for their family. Money from Lemonade Stands can help communities build things like wells, water filters, and rain tanks.

Founded by multi-platinum GRAMMY® Award winning band, Jars of Clay, Blood:Water Mission began in 2005 as a call to personalize the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa. After funding a late stage AIDS hospice and discovering the vital link between living with HIV/AIDS and the need for clean, safe water, Blood:Water launched nation-wide effort to provide clean water and sanitation to 1000 communities in sub-Saharan Africa based on the equation that $1 provides one African with clean water for an entire year.
