Wordful Wednesday: Alex's Lemonade Stand

I said that I would post what I was doing last Friday and Saturday. This is it. Selling lemonade and other goodies. The OP has been wanting to sell something so the hubs and a friend built us this huge lemonade stand and we decided to do an Alex's Lemonade Stand, which raises funds and awareness for pediatric cancer, with our Cloverbud kids.
Here she is, the OP, selling her lemonade.

As I have said before we live in the Land of Nowhere so we didn't raise a ton of money but the kids had a blast and are excited to do it again. I encourage everyone looking for something fun to do over the summer with your own kids or even with a 4-H group or scout group to host a lemonade stand through Alex's Lemonade - It is such a great foundation. Click to find out more information: HERE! If you are in the mood to donate to a good cause click here and then on the little lemon on the right hand side. The OP and I would greatly appreciate it. Our goal was to raise $1,000 and we are somewhat short of that by about $800. I think we are going to have to host a few more stands!

Hope everyone had a fun filled Fourth.

So awesome! What a great idea, even if you didn't raise a ton of money it's a great lesson to have for your child to think of someone other then themselves! I love the huge glass vat for the lemonade, where did you get that?
