I grew up in a house next to a post office. This was the ultimate location for a lemonade stand. From 11 AM to about 1:30 PM people would take their lunch breaks and stop by to pick up their mail. They couldn’t resist my cute face and amazing pitch for a nice, cold glass of lemonade. I raked it in, and I hoarded my earnings (and never paid my parents for ingredients). My intent wasn’t nearly as noble as Alex Scott, a 4-year-old who “announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer” in 2000. At the time she was in the middle of a fight against neuroblastoma, and she wanted to do everything that she could to help other kids facing a similar struggle. That lemonade stand grew into a movement called Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which is now a Wynnewood, PA based non-profit. Alex passed away in 2004 at the age of 8 having raised over $1 million to cure pediatric cancers. That’s an amazing accomplishment that becomes even more amazing when you see what her lemonade stand has grown into.

Get Your Lemonade!

There’s almost nothing sadder than a child with cancer, and there’s almost nothing happier than a kid with lemonade stand. The combination works in so many ways–even to the point of “making lemonade.” In the years since Alex first started selling lemonade, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has grown considerably and expanded their approach to fundraising. To date ALSF has raised more than $55 million, which has to make Alex’s Lemonade Stand the most successful lemonade stand in the history of the world. If you’d like to join ALSF, you should start by looking at their Internships page. They seem to offer paid opportunities year round, and it appears that they may still be looking for a Special Events Intern.
