Lemons of Love
About the Project
Lemons of Love is an organization that gives care packages to adults or kids who are going through chemotherapy. These packages have things like body lotion for dry skin, chapstick for chapped lips, tissues for tears, lemon drops for metallic chemo taste, nuts for protein, ginger tea for nausea and insomnia, dark chocolate for sweet cravings, bottled water for hydration, superhero socks because you are one, lemon superior lemonade, hand-drawn happy picture for smiles, lemons of love reusable water bottle, lemons of love silicone bracelet, and handmade donations like chemo hats and port pillows. They even do packages for animals, but the items are different.
This year, we are going to be raising money specifically for packages for kids going through chemo. Some of the things might change in the packages, but a lot of the stuff is the same.
Each box costs $75, and we are going to be raising $5,000 to donate 67 packages.
As well as raising money for them, I would also like the societies to design happy pictures for people who are receiving the packages to smile at.
How to Support: We are going to be selling yellow silicone bracelets for 5 dollars and the pins for 10 dollars.
Also because of covid, Lemons of Love has set up a donation page specifically for my project. This website will have it’s own unique web address. You can buy a pin, bracelet, or donate on the website with the proceeds going to Lemons of Love supporting my project.
