Girl, 13, Works To Bring Attention To African Water Crisis

STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Instead of having a birthday party, a 13-year-old girl has enlisted friends to carry jugs of water in Studio City to raise awareness and money for African water wells.

Since the age of 9, Lulu Cerone has taken an active interest in bringing water to international communities in need. After the earthquake in Haiti, Lulu decided to raise money for relief with a lemonade stand at a local park and challenged her friends to do the same. Together, they raised $,4000 in one weekend.

Lulu expanded on her lemonade stand concept, enlisting friends and local businesses for support, and developed her own charity, LemonAID Warriors.

On May 4, Luly will celebrate her 13th birthday with a Water Walk to raise money for the African water crisis. She has rallied a group of friends to walk two miles of Ventura Blvd., in Studio City, carrying jugs of water. She hopes that this act will encourage others to help save lives by giving money to build fresh-water drinking wells.

To donate or to get involved go to Lulu Cerone’s page on Causes. To see her LemonAID Warriors website click here.

The walk will be held on Friday, May 4, at 5 p.m., beginning at the corner of Laurel Canyon and Ventura Boulevard.
