Take A Stand!

July 28, 2008

 

Lemonade stands are a staple of childhood. This summer, your kids can take part in this timeless tradition while also raising money for charity. Sunkist Growers are distributing 20,000 lemonade stands for free to kids across the country, through the Sunkist Take a Stand® campaign, while supplies last through the month of August.

In its fourth year, the award-winning “Take a Stand” program encourages kids to give back to their community by raising money for a charity of their choice through a good old-fashioned and freshly-squeezed lemonade sale. Children must be ages 7-12 and simply pledge their commitment to a charity online at: http://www.sunkist.com/takeastand, to receive a free, 5-foot-high, cardboard lemonade stand. It’s colorful and easy to assemble, with space on the front panel to write in your cost-per-cup of lemonade and your charity of choice.

“Sunkist has taken a traditional summertime ritual and given it more meaning by having kids think beyond what they want for themselves,” said national Sunkist Take a Stand spokesperson Billy Dean. “Take a Stand gives kids an opportunity to think about other people in need. It lets them decide on their own what cause is important to them and gives them a way to support that charity – an incredible lesson that’ll last a lifetime.”

I just requested a stand for my children- I only wish I had known about this sooner, as they have been asking to do a lemonade stand all summer! I will be posting all about their lemonade stand adventures, after we receive our new stand- check back soon!
