Hello all! I am writing this on behalf of my 4-year-old son who has a lemonade business named JhaseMade Lemonade. Jhase is a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) graduate and he donates a portion of all profits to NICU Hospitals. Expanding JhaseMade Lemonade to a trailer will allow Jhase’s NICU donations to magnify.
Born at 24 weeks, weighing 1 lb 9 oz, Jhase spent a total of 91 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. During the fight of his life he learned to breathe on his own, poop, eat, and cuddle. We even won the Kangaroo contest for having the most amount of cuddling hours in the unit!
We talk often about his journey into this world. One day after asking who is helping the other little babies currently in the NICU, he said he wants to help the little babies become big babies and go home with their families just like he did. Just like that, JhaseMade was born.
My son LOVES lemonade and enjoys making it so we decided to put the two together birthing JhaseMade Lemonade.
Approximately 15 million babies are born prematurely every year and about 6,700 newborns die every day. Giving birth to a micropremie changed my life. I wasn’t able to hold him until he was 8 days old. I sat there day in day out watching him to make sure he was breathing. The worst feeling was walking into the NICU hearing the alarms blaring not knowing if it was my child declining. During our 91 days at the NICU, at least 3 premature babies died in the same room as us. I will never forget hearing those mothers screaming. It seemed as if I could hear their hearts shatter into a million pieces.
JhaseMade’s goal is to be a resource to saving as many babies as possible. Our donations have provided supplies, food, and hope for the advancement of future technology. The joy we receive from being able to help the smallest, most fragile patients is unmatched! We hope you join us in this fight to save as many NICU babies as possible!
JhaseMade sells several flavors of homemade lemonade made with vegan sugar, contains real fruit, and local honey which helps boost the immune system. Additionally, the fruit in each drink has its own individual health benefits. The name Jhase means “the healer”.
How the Funds will be used:
The donated funds will be used to purchase a horse trailer and transform it into an entire JhaseMade Lemonade experience. Customers will be able to customize their beverages. Having the trailer also allows JhaseMade to deliver the same great quality on a larger scale at a more affordable price. The cost of our cups will decrease, allowing us the opportunity to reevaluate our prices. Furthermore, we will no longer have to turn thirsty customers away due to selling out so quickly. Being able to increase production and sales will allow us to amplify our donations to Neonatal Intensive Care Units worldwide.
Even if you are unable to donate, please support us by sharing this with your family and friends and leave encouraging words below. Thank you!!
