When life gives you lemons… make lemonade!
Inspired by the journey of Philadelphia-area hero Alex Scott, the Alex’s Virtual Lemonade Stand Project celebrates the idea that just one kid can make a difference. Join schools from around the world to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research, all while participating in standards-based projects that make the process both inspiring and fun. It’s all about kids helping kids — and we want you to get involved!
As part of this two week program, each participating fundraising site will hold their own lemonade stands to help raise funds for pediatric cancer. Schools can hold one big lemonade stand day or a series of lemonade stand events throughout the two weeks. Schools will be able to communicate and interact with one another through the project blog, student-created videos, optional contests, and special videoconference events!
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is a national organization with Greater Philadelphia roots. The organization grew out of the front yard lemonade stand started by Alexandra “Alex” Scott, a pediatric cancer patient. In 2000, at the age of four, Alex opened her first annual lemonade stand with high hopes of raising money for pediatric cancer causes. Every year thereafter, Alex held an annual lemonade stand in her Pennsylvania front yard and inspired others to donate money to her cause.
If you’re looking for a unique and meaningful service learning project for your students, please join us on this incredible journey!
