hi! my name is riya and i'm an incoming eighth grader at mason middle school in mason, ohio; and i don't exactly have anything too special to share, but to me; it's worth sharing.
back in march of 2021, i said to myself "i wanna do something to help others, the community." so i decided to start putting up lemonade stands, to donate to different charities around the country. my first "debut" stand was on march 27th, 2021 at a park. we made $250 and all of that went to Feeding America to help families in need of food and household supplies. i am currently planning my next one to donate to Shine Like Sable (Our mission is spreading kindness through weekday and weekend food packs, buddy bench awareness, coordination of needs with teachers...wherever someone needs kindness. The Shine Like Sable Foundation honors the memory of Sable Paige Gibson.)
