Lemonade for Livy

The Blanket Brigade has a summer project!
This Saturday, July 26th, from 12-3 at Berry Yo Frozen Yogurt in Arlington Heights, we are going to be making a stand against Epilepsy.
"Why?", you may ask?
Because of Livy.  Livy and her family are dear friends our family.
Lemonade for Livy was inspired by nine year old Olivia (Livy) Scheinman who has had severe epilepsy since birth. Although she cannot walk or talk, she has incited a movement of children and families coming together from around the country to raise money for epilepsy research. Livy’s twin sister Hailey leads the movement from Clearwater, FL. She motivates people, through her Facebook videos (, to get involved and register their lemonade events. Each participating state on her Map of Hope is turned purple, the color for epilepsy awareness. Hailey’s goal is to turn each state purple.
As of this morning, FORTY EIGHT states have stands registered for this weekend's event.  48!!
Will YOU help us make a stand and be a part of this nationwide event?
We are SO thankful for Sheila, Berry Yo Frozen Yogurt's owner, who has welcomed our efforts at her store.  Whether you come for the best frozen yogurt in the area and stay for the lemonade or come for the lemonade and stay for the froyo, we look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
