Photo by the Epilepsy Foundation Our trip to Hollywood was amazing! We were asked to participate in the first annual Talk About It for Epilepsy Netathon and discuss Lemonade for Livy. It was incredible to serve lemonade to celebrities, world renowned doctors and representatives from the epilepsy community.
Hailey did a wonderful job discussing Lemonade for Livy with Greg Grunberg (Heroes, Heroes Reborn and Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Rick Harrison (Pawn Stars) and Phil Gattone (CEO Epilepsy Foundation). We are more determined than ever to make Lemonade for Livy successful and to bring hope to the 65 million people living with epilepsy. The event was a success and will serve as the foundation to build on for next year.
Lemonade for Livy is now less than 3 weeks away! We only have 21 more states to turn purple to have the entire country making a stand against epilepsy over the weekend of July 24 - 26. Do you live in one of the states that is not purple or know anyone in these states? We could really use your help! Please click here for more information and to register. This year when you register, you will not only receive your own virtual stand to deposit your funds, but you will also be able to send the information to your family and friends so they can contribute if they are not able to make it to your event.
If you, your child, a relative or a friend has epilepsy, please consider getting involved. There are 3 million people across the country and 65 million people around the world with the disorder. It's time to do something about it!
Lemonade for Livy started five years ago and we are still amazed at what the community can accomplish when we all come together. If you haven't participated before, please consider joining us. It is as easy as setting up a table, buying some cups and filling a pitcher of lemonade. If you have held a stand or party in the past, we thank you and would be grateful if you supported the campaign again this year. Our goal is $100,000 so every stand counts!
Our Livy's Hope Kids Crew delivered 20 boxes filled with donations to the Ronald McDonald House in St. Petersburg in June! The boxes were packed with items from the houses' wish list including paper towels, cleaning supplies, paper plates, plastic cutlery and much more. Thousands of families stay in our local houses every year and the need to provide for them is great. The kids also received a tour of the house and saw first hand how their donations will be put to good use. Thank you to all the kids and parents who helped with the collections.
Please click here to visit our Livy's Hope shop to view our entire collection of items. This month, we are encouraging people to purchase a Lemonade for Livy shirt and wear it in honor of the 65 million people living with epilepsy. If you are having a stand or party and would like to order, please place your order at least 10 business days prior to your event date to make sure it arrives in time.
