Summer is ramping up and there are exciting and interesting fundraising stories happening. Lets get into one that I discovered last week.
First lets meet Alex:
It’s amazing the change little Alex was able to start in just a few years. It seems that her idea is catching on because it’s growing strong .Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is partnering with some big name stores to fight childhood cancers. The corporations already aboard over the past couple of years are a roll call for huge name businesses. Here are just a few:
Country Time Lemonade
( kinda appropriate isn’t it! )
Bank of America
In addition to these corporations Toys R Us is partnering with ALSF for the second year to run a fundraising promotion called Help Fight Childhood Cancer One Cup at a Time.
“As a direct result of the funds raised over the course of our partnership with Toys R Us, ALSF has been able to finance critical scientific pediatric cancer research projects as we continue to raise awareness for this heartbreaking disease,” said Liz Scott, co-executive director of the foundation, in a statement.
Toys R Us will also utilize its Facebook page to provide updates, fun activities, and more for those interested in finding out more about the endeavor. In addition to all their other means of support Toys R Us has also put up a page on their website for online donations where you can donate any amount.
“We’re proud ot join ALSF for a second consecutive year,” said Sloane Lucas, director of corporate philanthropy for Toys R Us. “Through this campaign we look forward to helping kids and familes across the country make Alex’s dream of one day finding a cure, a reality.”
Drink up…it’s for a great cause!
