Do you know about National Lemonade Days? National Lemonade Days are being held June 6-8, 2014 and are one of the biggest and most exciting times of year for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation! I am so honored to be working with the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation as a blog ambassador to help spread the word about National Lemonade Days and how much the Foundation helps kids and families affected by pediatric cancer by getting us closer to a day when a cure will be found through life-saving research.
This summer will mark 10 years since 8-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004) challenged the nation to help her raise $1 million for childhood cancer cures, one cup of lemonade at a time. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is once again inviting volunteers across the country to host lemonade stands over the course of those three days to continue Alex’s mission and bring renewed attention to the fight against childhood cancer. And there is still time to register and receive an awesome kit of materials to help you hold your own lemonade stand in time for Lemonade Days!
I am teaming up with the good folks at NEST to hold a stand this Friday May 30th from 9:30-11:30am. It will be a combination of a lemonade stand and a Stella & Dot jewelry show fundraiser with 100% of all profits going to support Lily Adkins’ 6th Annual Lemonade Stand! You can read more about Lily and her family on her mom’s blog. And you can even donate online to Lily’s 6th Annual Lemonade Stand here too! Swing by NEST and see us Friday morning at our lemonade stand fundraiser event!
Here’s what was included in my kit as an Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation blogger ambassador:
If you sign up to hold a stand during National Lemonade Days by Wednesday May 28th, you’ll receive a similar kit with all the essentials you need to hold a stand too including balloons, wristbands, stickers, bandanas, banners and more. It also includes coupons from some of the Foundation’s corporate partners such as Country Time Lemonade so you don’t even need to worry about buying that for your stand! They make it so easy!
My kids and I have had such powerful experiences holding lemonade stands to help support Lily and the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in the past. It’s a wonderful way to make a difference and help teach your children that they can make a difference too!
If you want to hold your own stand:
National Lemonade Days is happening June 6-8, 2014. Register by May 28th to get a lemonade stand kit in time for National Lemonade Days. (Of course, you can register for a lemonade stand kit anytime of year if you do not make it in time for National Lemonade Days next month. Lemonade stands are held all year long!)
And if you are local consider checking out the following fun events to help support this great cause:
