I recently read that June and July have been designated by The Cure Starts Now Foundation (Curing Cancer, One Child At A Time) as months to "make a stand" - a lemonade stand, that is, and donate the proceeds to finding a cure for pediatric brain cancer. Click here to learn more! The link lists several different ways you can get involved in helping this important cause. If you go here - https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=ee136f - there's a link to download a starter kit with some signs for the kids to color and post. That's also where you can register your stand.
Since our neighborhood is pretty small, I actually made a call to the person who runs our local Farmer's Market to see if we can put up a stand there one morning this month so we'll hopefully get some decent business and raise a good amount. Abby is pretty excited about it. She's been begging me to let her have a lemonade stand forever - and after reading about this foundation, there's definitely no time like the present!
*Follow-up to come! If you decide to do one with your kids too, I'd love to hear about it!
