Making a Positive Impact Through Knowledge & Charity
Evan & Friends
Evan & Friends: Painting the World Brighter one Charity at a time – is a cause in World Heritage Cultural Center that started a few months ago by Evan. Evan loves Art and I asked him if he can do something special for other kids with his art work what he would do?
Evans answer: “I would like to sell my art work to help kids that need food, shelter, parents (he meant orphans) as such. So we gathered a few friends of Evan and started this Cause lead by these young minds!”
Our goal is to create young marvels through projects that will allow E&F members to discover ways to change the world for others. These unique and rewarding experiences to directly help those in less fortunate circumstances cannot be compared to any other. In addition E&F members will acquire the developmental assets and academic skills needed for individual, social, and academic success.
Membership is free.
Members are welcome to suggest a charity to donate to and E&F will organize a fundraising and “Paint the World Brighter one Charity at a Time!”When he was 12 years old, while playing basketball, a brain aneurysm burst in his head.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Alexandra “Alex” Scott was born to Liz and Jay Scott in Manchester, Connecticut on January 18, 1996, the second of four children.
Shortly before her first birthday, Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer. On her first birthday, the doctors informed Alex’s parents that if she beat her cancer it was doubtful that she would ever walk again. Just two weeks later, Alex slightly moved her leg at her parents’ request to kick. This was the first indication of who she would turn out to be – a determined, courageous, confident and inspiring child with big dreams and big accomplishments.
By her second birthday, Alex was crawling and able to stand up with leg braces. She worked hard to gain strength and to learn how to walk. She appeared to be beating the odds, until the shattering discovery within the next year that her tumors had started growing again. In the year 2000, the day after her fourth birthday, Alex received a stem cell transplant and informed her mother, “when I get out of the hospital I want to have a lemonade stand.” She said she wanted to give the money to doctors to allow them to “help other kids, like they helped me.” True to her word, she held her first lemonade stand later that year and raised an amazing $2,000 for “her hospital.”
While bravely battling her own cancer, Alex continued to hold yearly lemonade stands in her front yard to benefit childhood cancer research. News spread of the remarkable sick child dedicated to helping other sick children. People from all over the world, moved by her story, held their own lemonade stands and donated the proceeds to Alex and her cause.
In August of 2004, Alex passed away at the age of 8, knowing that, with the help of others, she had raised over $1 million to help find a cure for the disease that took her life. Alex’s family – including brothers Patrick, Eddie, and Joey – and supporters around the world are committed to continuing her inspiring legacy through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
