About Our Charities
The two wonderful charities PassItOnword™ supports are: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and charity: water.
The first time a new stone is put into circulation and registered on the PassItOnword website, a donation takes place. You select the charity that most appeals to you. If you can’t decide, buy two stones and donate to each! A portion of our proceeds, (1% or $.19) from every new stone registered on our site goes to the charity of your choice.
ALEX LEMONADE STAND FOUNDATION:
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $80 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 450 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.

Right now, 800 million people on the planet don’t have access to clean and safe drinking water. That’s one in nine of us. 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.
charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. They use 100% of public donations to directly fund sustainable water solutions in areas of greatest need. To learn more, visit www.charitywater.org
