Giving Back by the Glass

With lemonade on the brain yesterday, and my newly discovered love for a little pink Lorina bubbly; I thought that this charity mentioned in June's issue of Real Simple was very fitting.




If you visit Alexslemonade.org you can read the amazing story of four year old Alex Scott, and her truly inspiring story of how she had the courage and ambition to raise millions in the battle against pediatric cancer by setting up a simple lemonade stand. Sadly, Alex passed in 2004, but her legacy lives on when thousands around the country join in and making their own fund raising lemonade stand June 8th-10th in honor of her.

This story really hit home because I have such fond memories of my brother, sister,and I spending endless summer days on the street corner in front of our house selling cup after cup of lemonade. We were lucky enough to be happy and healthy, and I have seen first hand how painful and heartbreaking childhood cancer can be through extended family members.


So please if you have kids, or even if you don't, take the time and check out this amazing cause. You can make wonderful memories with your family next weekend with your own "Alex's Lemonade Stand" or just make a simple donation to help others have wonderful memories just like you've had.
