Change the world this weekend with lemons

No matter how old your kids are, they can use their own talents to change the world.

“I believe that everyone can do something,” says 11-year-old Tyler. “It’s just whether they want to set their mind and heart to it.”

Tyler has turned his big dreams of bringing clean water to communities in Africa into reality. So far, he has raised more than $18,000 with his lemonade stand — and he’s not done yet!

Father’s Day gift ideas that pay it forward

Ezekiel and his mom Rachael race to the finish line in a 5K color dash in Saint Peter, Minnesota, in June, 2013. The event was organized by “Livestock,” a non-profit music festival, founded by Jill and Alex Hass, to provide animals through World Vision’s Gift Catalog. “This was our first color dash,” says Rachel. “The picture captures his attitude toward life.” She added that “Loving others and helping them is central to our goal to further Christ's Kingdom by showing love. Running the race, and donating money toward World Vision and other charities is important to us because it helps us think outside of ourselves.”
