Alex’s Lemonade Stand

June 24, 2012

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is committed to finding a cure for all childhood cancers. To date, they have funded over 200 research projects at more than 70 institutions across the country! In addition to funding cutting-edge research into finding better treatments and ultimately cures, they also fund nursing grants to improve the quality of life and care of children with cancer.

We dig this, its an awesome cause, an awesome idea for fundraising, and all from the mind of an awesome little girl.

If you ever needed proof that anyone can give back, I think this is it. My daughter and I set up our own online fundraiser which you can donate to here if you’re so inclined. http://www.alexslemonade.org/mypage/85448 You can also text “Lemonade E85448” to the number 85944 to donate $10 straight from your phone. Simple! You wouldnt believe how hard it is to get someone to let you hold an actual lemonade stand some place busy, but we’re working on it!

A $400 donation funds about a day of research, lets cure some cancer!
