Sunkist continues popular free lemonade stands for charity program
There is nothing quite as warming to the heart as a child's genuine desire to help people who need it and Sunkist, Rubbermaid, and Domino/C&H sugar are trying to make charitable work easier for kids with their Take a Stand program.
Beginning May 1st, children between the ages of 7 and 12 who are residents of the United States or any province in Canada can register on the Sunkist website for a free lemonade stand to run and raise money for the charity of their choice.
Since inception in 2003, it is estimated that Take a Stand has helped to raise more than $1.5 million for charity by kids, one glass of lemonade at a time. Last year, 11,000 pledges were received with kids writing in from every state in the U.S. and every province in Canada. The top five states with the most kids pledging to raise money for charity through a lemonade sale included Ohio, Pennsylvania, California, Texas and New York.
In addition to the free stand, the website includes tips on how to run a successful lemonade stand along with safety tips, printable sales trackers, poster and signs to help your charitable entrepreneur have a record-breaking fundraiser.
