Another Idea From Zoe’s Corner

This weekend, September 7-9, over 500 Old Navy stores will be participating in a fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a fantastic organization that began as one little girl with neuroblastoma raising money for cancer research and has since exploded into a huge contributor in the fight against childhood cancer.  Some of the stores will be hosting their own lemonade stands and some will be selling paper lemons to raise money for children with cancer.

What a fantastic and easy way to make a difference in the life of a child battling cancer!  And what better time to do it than during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month?!

So, if you are out and about this weekend, please stop by your local Old Navy to grab a cup of lemonade or a paper lemon in support of Alex’s Lemonade Stand!  Every little contribution makes a huge difference!

Another Idea From Zoe’s Corner + Featured Charity: Alex’s Lemonade Stand!

Attention Parents! Here’s another way to have free fun with your children while helping to make a contribution to a great charity!

This Saturday, February 4th, from 12-2 pm, you can go to your local ToysRUs store and build a free LEGO Friends Lemonade Stand to take home as part of your child’s personal LEGO collection.

What a Fun Edition to Your Own Lego Collection!

For each stand built, the LEGO Group will donate $1 (up to $10,000) to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a great organization helping in the fight against childhood cancer.

ALSF was founded by Alexandra “Alex” Scott, a 4-year-old girl who was diagnosed with childhood cancer.  When she passed away at the age of 8, her lemonade stand fundraisers (and those by others inspired by her determination) had already raised more than $1 million for cancer research!  Since 2005, her parents have carried on with Alex’s fundraising efforts in memory of their brave and amazing daughter while countless others around the nation continue to lend their support to this worthy cause.

So, this weekend, head on over to ToysRUs and help support ALSF by making your own lemonade stand.  It’s charity and fun mixed into one day!  For more information about this event, please visit www.alexslemonadestand.org.
