The Lemon-Aid Project

Lemon-Aid is a Labor Day Weekend city-wide fundraiser originally held from 1994 to 2000, where kids across Tulsa, Oklahoma donated their time to sell lemonade and all money raised went directly to benefit the children and families at the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. Over the course of seven Labor Day Weekends, with the help of more than 10,000 youth volunteers, Lemon-Aid raised more than $350,000.

With a mission of Kids Helping Kids, The Lemon-Aid Project is a California non-profit with IRS 501(c)(3) approval submitted and pending that creates fun and engaging community activities for all ages while raising funds and awareness for children- and family-related charities within the community.

25 years ago, Tulsa kids showed the city how to give back through a simple childhood tradition: a lemonade stand. Now, Tulsa is going to teach the world how to give back through this same good ol' fashioned tradition in a new fashioned way. We will start in Tulsa in 2019 and hope to expand to other cities and communities in the future.
