!deation (KooDooZ, Charity Water, & Lemonade Int’l)

Charles Lee created and hosted the !deation Conference.  Here are more highlights:

Lee Fox created KooDooZ which is a website designed to empower youth by challenging them to find their life balance of heart, mind, body and spirit. Whether it’s attaining a personal goal, accomplishing a community objective, or being part of a humanitarian cause, KooDooZ lays the foundation for middle and high school kids to understand how to articulate and act upon their own values, motivations and passions.

Scott Harrison and Charity Water seeks to bring clean water to the 1 billion people who do not have it by using 100% of public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren’t strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.

Bill Cummings and his wife Sherie created Lemonade International which is educating and empowering people in the largest urban slum in Central America – La Limonada in Guatemala City. Since 2001, Tita Evertsz and her team have provided love, education, healthy meals, mentoring, counseling, medical care, scholarships, gang prevention through the “Vidas Plenas” (translation: “Full Lives”) program.
