Hi everyone! 

Just a heads up that we will be making our Lemon Butter Creams just in time for Christmas! We use Fair Trade Organic Shea Butter from Uganda and Raw Organic Coconut Oil.  When you buy our creams we all get to help support 2000 farmers and their families in a village in Lira, Uganda. The company my mom buys the shea butter from contributes part of its sales to support local community development: education, training, health care and environmental awareness.  Your support doesn't stop there.  When you purchase our creams 10% of all proceeds goes to support our organization Kids Canada to help our friends in Uganda and in Canada  See the cool projects you helped to support last year - Our Kids Mean Business

Our creams still cost $10 for a 60ml glass jar and are wrapped and delivered to your door before Christmas.  Wyatt and I are making a fresh batch that will be ready by December 18th so place your orders in soon.  Thanks so much for supporting us since 2011!


Love, 
Kaia and Wyatt

6 word memoir.


“Possibilities are endless… why lose hope?!” I chose these 6 words thinking of all of the recent events that I have encountered; and of all of the people who never lost faith in me and my decisions. I have always had strong thoughts and opinions about the world around us, and what could possibly be in it. My brother and I grew up thinking, “why do people have to be so unfair?” So starting around two years ago, my mother, Wyatt and I, took that thought to the next level. Creating an organization where we believe that “No one should look down on others, unless you're there to help them back up.” So I guess I would like to conclude by saying: You should never give up on your hopes and dreams, by considering your life as an unpredictable journey.

Christmas, Donors and other things.

Hey! So.... its Christmas!! I would like to start off by thanking everyone who has been supporting us and this organization for all of these years.  Wyatt's school, Queen Alexandra Middle School, has recently held a bake sale to raise funds for KIDS CANADA and successfully made $208!! So a special thanks to our 2014 grade 6 classes and their amazing teachers, Ms Kady Rose and Ms Ola Danyliuk who organized the day!!!

I would like to announce that we are about to launch a new business line. Lemon Butter Cream. We are selling 60ml for $10, or Shea Butter lip balms, 4$ each or 3 for $10. donating 10% of our profits to kids Canada. Our new creams are 100% natural and organic, with our special touch of essential oils. Our shea butter is produced in Uganda and supports a community in Lira. So be the first one to try it! 

Just to get you guys up to date on what has been going on, we have bought 1 acre of land in Bombo, Uganda. With the help of Karim Wissanji, who is helping us design the lay out of the land, Cigdem Coskun and Toronto Seed Library who helped us a LOT, by donating seeds to our current project of building gardens. Thanks again to Queen Alexandra Middle School for raising funds to help us purchase tools for gardening and building. We are now on our way to building our Uganda Kids Canada Centre!

So i would like to conclude this some what informative post, by saying Happy holidays! I hope you all have an Amazing break, spending time with all of the people you love! I know i wil
-Kaia

KIDS CANADA!!


   A quick shout out to Wyatt and his friends at Dundas Junior public school for helping us so much by raising lots of money through their penny drive. Together with the money raised by the children in Uganda themselves, we were able to buy 4 Tiva biosand water filtration systems.

 So about those new friends i was talking about who are from
NEMA Children's Choir-Uganda
who came to Canada. Wow that could be used for a tongue twister. Anyways, we went over to the place that they were staying at and I taught them how to make our special signature flower rings so that they would be able to make some money by selling them while they are here and when they are back in Uganda. I also made marshmallow balls (squares) with them which they loved. Thanks Peter's No Frills for your generous donation. We also took them to Centre Island and we all had the best time. I feel like this organization, (
KIDS CANADA ) is going to be a huge success because of all of the wonderful people who are helping us out.



Nema Kids and Kids Canada at Toronto Centre Island


Thanks Denise Lo for the Pizza and for coming out with us!


 kick starting a micro business with our friends. The funds raised from selling the flower rings will help support their orphanage in Uganda 









 We loved the music and the singing we were surprised with

Kids Canada in Uganda

Wow, my mom took a trip to Uganda again. But this time, she's staying there for a month and a half, not 2 weeks. But i totally understand why she has to be there. I really miss her and can't wait to see her again. But i guess she'll be spending st. Patrick's day, April fools day, Easter and her birthday in Africa. I'll stay strong though as long as my mom is having fun and doing what she loves. So I'll wish her, and every one else in Uganda, good luck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  KIDS CANADA in Uganda

hello!!! my challenge for you guys today or any day that you've read this post is to make someone happy. and you can do that from being nice by saying hi to someone  or helping someone out with something like holding the door for them or if somebody drops something obviously help them pick it up. because helping people and making them happy to me puts a smile on peoples face. i love to make a difference by having this organization. and i want to say thank you to my friends who support me and what I'm doing the most. so im not saying to go off and run your own business or organization but what i am trying to say is that every one can make a difference in the world starting with a smile.

its christmas time

Ali and i had a fund raiser by selling hot chocolate and cupcakes. we made $160 and were able to by two bio sand water filters. my mom went to Kampala Uganda around October and got to meet the kids. Also with the pen pal program, make sure that you give in your letter if you want one and if you already have, then we're still waiting for your pen pals to write back.


So we made a batch of our creams for Christmas sales we already got some orders in. we also are now selling fresheners for also $10. so if your going to buy some creams or fresheners then make sure you do it soon before we run out.

Oh and if you guys are into mysteries then be sure to check out "Ruby Sky PI" its a really good show that i really love. there are two seasons of them and one of them is called the haunted library and it is so scary but really well written and even if you don't like mysteries then you should still watch it because it is sooo good.

Also, I'm writing a book called "friends forever" and its about disasters and drama queens and how Sarah and Bridget, best friends of all times, have to face going through grade 5 and realizing how hard it can be...


thanks for reading

Ali and I

Well, I haven't said anything for a long time but anyways I'll get started.  I know that this is a bit late, because I should have written a post about this like 5 months ago but whatever.

Ali and I raised $150 at the Muhtadi International Drumming Festival. Thanks Kayenne for your help! Thanks Muhtadi for your generous support!  We went to the dollar store and bought a whole bunch of stuff. The $50 that is left will be spent on 25 school bags in Uganda or used towards a water filtration system.  My cousin Mark helped to build 3 of them when he was teaching in Africa this summer.  Also Kate and her friends raised $50 by selling homemade lemonade.


Oh ya and I forgot to mention that Emma and I also raised $70 at another fundraiser for a different cause. PTMOF. 
Solome supports the Nggaali Project so we wanted to support her buy selling our rings.
CYNTHIA AND SOLOME
Wow well Halloween is coming around, so I am so excited to go trick or treating and guess what...I'm going to be the queen of all DEVILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (bow down before me) whaaa ha ha ha ha ha !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi

My friend Ali and I will be at the Muhtadi International Drumming Festival on Saturday!  It is a 2 day festival at Woodbine Park.
We're raising money for our pen pals in Uganda there because our principal, Miss  Alexander,  at Withrow  told us that we couldn't hold a bakesale at our school because the school wasn't behind it.  Me and my friends  Emma and Olivia   all made posters and made presentations to our teacher, Madam Kertez.   Kate got lots of signatures and so did Emma, Ali and me but it didn't help.

Here's what's happening Nggaali News June 2012

Thanks Muhtadi for  supporting the Nggaali Project!

BYE!

Nice Things People Say




Your cream has a unique blend of essential oils that is so good for the skin, and so perfectly natural, as I don't use any chemicals  - how can I buy some?
I have been using your cream as a lip conditioner, it is heavenly.


KC, Toronto

Dear Lemon Jar,
Just got back from skiing at Mt. Tremblant Quebec.  I  used your cream over my entire face before venturing out on the slopes in  -24 degree weather.  It was a fabulous protective balm against the elements that make Tremblant famous.  Initially there is a coconut oil "glow" as the potion melts on your skin but within 6-7 min there is no sheen.  Embarrassed to admit even at 42 I still have "breakouts" so I was a bit nervous about using an oil based cream on my skin.  My skin remains nourished and clear.   My eyes always seem to sting using any eye cream.  For Christmas I asked for the very expensive Kiel's eye cream.  Nice cream-VERY "stingy"  I was able to use my Lemon Jar cream even around my eyes and experienced no stinging. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your products!!!!!  I used your cream on my 4 year old and my 11 year old as well before they went out as well. ( Little boys are not keen on scarves so whatever I could use to protect his face)  I really think that Lemon Jar products belong on the ski slopes.............in the lovely little "Boutique" shops at Tremblant..................
Thank-you so much!
I would like to order 3 jars.......it's going to be a long winter!!!!

AT,   toronto


The second batch of cream you gave me are again sold out, except the two I kept for ourselves.

If you have time to prepare some more, I can continue to help sell them to my family and friends during the holidays. Maybe another 10 or 20 jars?

Ac, Toronto


My friends, Aries and Al Noor, bought me a jar of your wonderful Coconut Lime Cream which I looooved!  I just ran out and would like to buy another one before I leave on my trip, this Friday.  Is it possible for me to swing by today or tomorrow and buy one?  Where can I get one?

Thank you and congratulations on your wonderful product and project!!!
LL, Toronto

Please tell your sweet kids that I love their cream. I have very sensitive skin and used it to calm a wee rash on my throat - felt like the best thing I could have put on.. : ) 

CL, Toronto


Kaia I think it's so cool that you're doing this you are very talented when it comes to these things. Your cream looks,smells and feels delicious.and you're rings make my fingers look like spring.

TWO GOATS FOR OUR FRIENDS IN UGANDA!

Hi this is Kaia and Wyatt.
Thanks if you have bought our COCONUT LIME CREAMS!  We were able to buy two goats for our friends in Uganda with your help.

If you would like to also help you could buy some of our creams or rings or donate directly to the AFSU.  
 
Please read Cynthia's letter below.
 
 
In some regions of Uganda, survival is a daily challenge, especially for the many orphans and children who live in poverty, vulnerable to hunger and illness.
Advocacy Through Filming and Screening Uganda has established a small farm to provide for some of the most needy. 
Goats are bred locally and provide a healthful source of milk and nutrition for the children, but the need is great


This holiday season, why not give a gift that will reach far beyond your own circle of loved ones and touch our global family? One goat costs only $25, and can mean much to those who have so little. 

It's very simple: in exchange for your $25 donation we will send you a beautiful, printable PDF Christmas letter, personally addressed to the recipient of your choice,
telling them the story of what their gift means to children who know nothing of toys and tinsel.  Every donation of a goat welcomes both giver and receiver to the AFSU community; we'll put your names on a Farm Donors page on the AFSU website, 
and on the mailing list for updates about all our projects, including the exciting upcoming visit of the Nggaali Children Touring Group in June. 


A charitable gift is one that continues to grow long after the holidays are done, is suitable for all ages and faiths, and has the added benefit of keeping you out of the mall and in good spirits. You can make your purchase in minutes online; all you have to add is an envelope and a hug. 

"It takes a village" as they say, and these days we are discovering just how near is that village, and how small is our world. 
We are, indeed, One. 

Please, give a Kid today.

COCONUT LIME CREAMS




The LEMON JAR.blogspot.com
Love Potions handmade by Kaia and Wyatt



Homemade skincare products do not last as long as store bought products. 

What The LEMON JAR does to help keep your Coconut Lime Cream fresh

1.     Our ingredients are antibacterial. We use Essential oils of Lavender Lemon, Lime, Calendula infused in olive oil and Raw Organic Coconut Oil.
2.     We use glass jars because plastic is porous and breaks down.
3.     We make small fresh batches that you should enjoy within a year.

How you can help keep your LEMON JAR products fresh

1.     Dip into the jars with Dry Clean Fingers.  Keep away from water.
2.     Store in dark cool places or in your fridge to avoid light and heat oxidation.
3.     Your Coconut Lime Cream will melt in warmer temperatures.  If this happens –just shake the jar to mix oils and store in your fridge.

How to use your Coconut Lime Cream

Coconut oil contains antioxidants that stop free radicals from aging the skin.   Easily absorbed  -it softens, nourishes and protects by forming a barrier on your skin to avoid moisture loss.   Use on skin and hair after a bath to moisturize and to replenish lost oils.
Use on cuts, scrapes and bruises. 
Use as a diaper cream and to massage your little ones after a bath.
Citrus oils are used in aromatherapy and have many healing properties but are photosensitive –avoid immediate exposure to sun when applied to exposed skin.

Lavender -calming, antiseptic, antifungal, helps to heal wounds, calms inflammation.
Lemon –energizing, refreshing, enhances concentration, antiseptic, astringent, antibacterial.
Lime –revitalizing, antiseptic, astringent, antibacterial
Calendula infused in olive oil –helps to heal wounds, dry skin, rashes and burns, calms inflammation, antiseptic and regenerating.
For more information about Coconut oil for your skin and hair check out

Nggaali Pen Pal Program

Hi this is kaia

 Wyatt  and I raised $55 for the Nggaali kids at the Ijo Vudu concert.  The show was spectacularly awesome!
 www.ijovududance.com. 
Sani generously donated a table to Cynthia and us.


 The last time we made $50 so in total we made $105.   We passed our goal by $5. We hope to make some more money for them!  Happy birthday Cynthia!

 Wyatt and I are participating in a pen pal program with our new friends in Uganda.  
Mugambe, the founder of Advocacy Through Filming and Screening Uganda (AFSU) came up with this great idea. www.advocacyuganda.com
             
We are asking our friends if they  would also like to participate.
So far I have two of my friends,  Emma and Josie, who are starting to write their letters.

 My friend EMMA and I are hoping to raise some more money for them.  It was hard to think about what we were going to sell because  there are so many things you
can do and Emma is good at lots of things.

 We are going to try to sell some bracelets that  Emma 
will make and I will make some of my  flower 
rings.  We will both try to make some earrings 
that I hope will work out.

I don't know for sure where it's going to be but
once I find out I'll put it up for every one to see.

 thanks for stopping by!

love kaia!
