Lemonade for Livy weekend was a wonderful success! We had over 140 stands and parties registered from across the US as well as the UK, Aruba and Canada. We like to thank all of you who participated by either holding a stand or by sharing information online. We are grateful for your time and effort and appreciate your willingness to help. You are the reason the campaign has spread and we feel blessed that Lemonade for Livy has been embraced by the community. With your assistance, we will be able to provide the Epilepsy Foundationadditional resources to fund research that will lead to a cure. The next steps for the campaign to grow is to create more awareness and to involve additional people. We will continue to spread the Lemonade for Livy message of hope as far and wide as we can.
So far, we have raised $15,000 and counting with a substantial amount yet to come in! If you have funds from your event, please deposit them into your virtual stand on CrowdRise. If you don't have a virtual stand, you can either create one on CrowdRise or deposit your funds into the general donations stand.
