The Lemonade Project

Have you heard of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation?

Alex was a beautiful little girl who had cancer. At the tender age of four, Alex came up with the idea to have a lemonade stand to raise money for the hospital so they could find a cure. You can read this amazing story in the beautiful children’s book Alex and the Amazing Lemonade Stand.

You can listen to the book being read by my friend Tracy here.

Alex and the Amazing Lemonade Stand

This year my fifth grade students held a fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. My students raised $4,865.00 for the foundation! I am so proud of them!
If you would like to have a fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation or to make a donation go to and you will see a variety of fundraising ideas.
Alex was an amazing little girl. The words in the book on page 29 are, “You see, Alex lived by the words from which her foundation was laid . . . when life give you lemons, just make lemonade.”
