I hope you join the fight against childhood cancer and register for a free kit to host your own Alex’s Lemonade stand! June 12-14 (Friday through Sunday), 2015 are this year’s designated “Lemonade Days” from the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. This is a nationwide effort to host a lemonade stand with your friends, family, neighbors, and more to help fund research for cures for childhood cancers. One in 330 children will be diagnosed with childhood cancer by the time they are 20. Less than 5% of federal research goes towards finding a cure for childhood cancer. Your help is needed for cutting edge medical research and nursing grants!
Check out these cancer facts. They are alarming and heartwrenching:
I hosted a Lemonade Days stand last year with my children and the neighborhood kids and it was such a wonderful experience! It is such a great way to teach children to care for others!
Here are ways you can help this year!
- Visit LemonadeDays.org and register by June 5, 2015 to request a free fundraising kit and to access downloadable materials for your lemonade stand. The kits include needed materials; posters, banners, thank you notes, fundraising tips, and more.
