Give Some Kids Lemons; They値l Help Bali

A Group of U.S. Kids Recall a Memorable Visit to Bali by Selling Lemonade to Help the Children of the East Bali Poverty Project


(8/13/2012)

On Saturday, June 30, 2012, a group of American children, who spent last August on the Island of Bali, held lemonade and used toy sales in the yard of a Washington, D.C. residence to raise money to help buy school uniforms for 183 Balinese friends they met during a two-day visit to their remote village in North Bali.



Hugo and Della Carney, the children of U.S. Presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney and ABC TV’s “Good Morning America” reporter Claire Shipman; and Evie and Ricky Hardart - the offspring of Film Producer Tom Hardart and Virginia Shore - held their lemonade fundraiser in the Carney’s backyard in suburban Washington, D.C..

Both the yard’s lawns and the art of neighborhood lemonade sales may never be the same after this enterprising group of juveniles turned the sale into a society event managing to raise nearly US$3,000 – a sum that included matching funds from their generous parents.

The sale included lemonade, cookies and used toys and was supported by posters in key locations in Washington,  creating sufficient “buzz” to warrant extensive [photographic coverage in Washington Life Magazine]. 

And, with a Dad who speaks to the world's press every day from the White House in his role as Presidential Press Secretary and a Peabody Award-winning Mom who visits households across America each morning on ABC TV,  it's little wonder that word of the lemonade sale got around.

But the full credit for the event rests with the children who were motivated to try to make a difference in the lives of a large group of underprivileged children near the village of Ban in a remote area of Northeast Bali by assisting the [East Bali Poverty Project - EBPP]. The kids spent  August 17, 2011 – Indonesian Independence Day - celebrating with the children of EBPP.

Delighted with the success of their project, 7-year-old Della Carney and her 11-year-old brother Hugo shared the following message with Balidiscovery.com, asking us to pass it along to their friends at EBPP: “I can’t believe we raised $1,000! I hope the money we got from our sale helps with uniforms. Your villages are so beautiful and we liked meeting you.”

The money collected was used to produce 183 school uniforms and purchase new undergarments for children from the villages of Bunga, Manikaji and Darmaji – all part of the large community served by EBPP.

David Booth M.B.E. the Bali-based founder of EBPP, recalling the 2011 visit of Claire Shipman and Virginia Shore, said: "After Claire, Virginia and their children joined me to see some of our remote schools, bouncing up very steep and bumpy dirt tracks on 16th August 2011, they all were impressed at our children's good education but more so by their children joining activities with EBPP students, especially when they donated 2 ukuleles to our schools. When they all attended our 17th August Independence Day event, their children competed with ours especially in the krupuk eating competition and they were totally hilarious!"

Continuing, David added: “Claire's children were so moved and inspired by their visit and connection with impoverished children that they did a fundraiser in July this year in USA with a goal to raise what they could towards the over $3,000 to provide school uniforms for as many of EBPP's students as possible. Awesome! Their children's one-day fundraiser achieved $1,000 and then with addition from the parents, we proudly received $3,000 - sufficient for our 280 students basic school uniforms. This is particularly special because we have not been able to provide new uniforms for our children for almost 2 years now - and it's not only the children's pride self esteem that is rapidly elevated when they wear their distinctive uniforms, but also their parents and complete communities: because their children are the first generation to get a complete, relevant and integrated education. EBPP school uniforms are different from government schools and they stand out, becoming the pride of their village. Claire and Virginia's children do want to keep in touch and I am sure that this is the start of a long, enjoyable and culturally mutually beneficial loving relationship!”

Travel arrangements for the Carney-Shipman's and Shore-Hardarts during their Bali visit were handled by Balidiscovery.com.
