In addition to giving bears to hospitalised children, Nina sells her handmade bears and donates the money to charity. Creativity and service neatly rolled together in this meaningful project!

Alex’s Lemonade Stand

Posted by Peter MUIR

Alex’s Lemonade Stand was started up by 8-year-old Alex Scott, who wanted people across the US to host a lemonade stand during one weekend in June to help fight childhood cancer – one cup (of lemonade) at a time.

Now, National Lemonade Days is an annual June tradition in the US that raises over $1 million for childhood cancer research through thousands of stands and events held across the country. Alex Scott could certainly be considered a change maker – somebody with a passion and a plan who preserved to make it happen.
