3rd Graders Hold 3rd Annual Lemonade Stand for Orphaned Children
Two young girls in San Diego held a lemonade stand to fundraise for orphaned and vulnerable children served by Unity 4 Orphans for the third year in a row.
Proving that you’re never too young to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate, 8-year-olds Aashi and Aanya held a lemonade stand for charity. This year they raised $320 and donated all proceeds to the children U4O serves in Latin America.
Teaching Children to Give to Those Living in Poverty Builds Character
Aashi is passionate about raising funds for children who are less fortunate. In past years, the lemonade stand has been in her neighborhood and at a local park, and this year she tried a more public location. Posted up outside of a local grocery store, the girls sold classic, pink, and mint lemonade to thirsty shoppers and proudly told them all proceeds benefit orphaned and vulnerable children
Don’t waste your money buying things you don’t need . . . be kind and take care of others.
–Aashi Shah, age 8
The girls took turns going into the store asking shoppers to consider making a donation. Their enthusiasm and philanthropy inspired many to contribute and they plan to do it again next year.
Philanthropy Brings Friends and Families Together for a Shared Cause
To others considering holding a similar fundraiser, the girls recommend going to a more public place like a store or park as well as having the option of Venmo or Zelle so people can donate easily and quickly.
I really appreciate the effort these kids put in, inspiring others to be kind, give back to the community, and help those around us. Our society needs more selfless acts of kindness.
–Jhanjhri Shah, Aashi’s mom
One of Aashi’s favorite parts of the experience each year is to personally deliver the check to Joe. We’re inspired by her philanthropic spirit and the way her family and friends join her enthusiasm for giving back and hope you are too!
