This week, June 3-11 are National Lemonade Days, started by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily research into new treatments and cures and to encourage and empower others – especially children – to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer.
Alexandra “Alex” Scott was born to Liz and Jay Scott in Manchester, Connecticut on January 18, 1996, the second of four children. Shortly before her first birthday, Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer.
In August of 2004, Alex passed away at the age of eight, knowing that, with the help of others, she had raised more than $1 million to help find a cure for the disease that took her life. Alex’s family — including brothers Patrick, Eddie and Joey — and supporters around the world are committed to continuing her inspiring legacy through Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
In the near future, I could see myself hosting a lemonade themed cocktail soiree to help raise funds, but in the meantime, I thought this virtual stand would do, AKA “The Lemonline Stand” and I promise to donate my sales commissions from your shopping today to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation or you can go directly to the source and make your donation here.
If you want to go ahead with the lemon cocktails, here are some ideas from my ‘Food & Drink‘ pinboard.
