Summer of Lemonade for a Little Girl with Big Dreams

A young Detroiter is selling a yummy beverage from her own stand with a big goal of heading off to Disney World. It seems like she might get there!

Summer of Lemonade for a Little Girl with Big Dreams

This is the summer of lemonade! My 5-year-old started her own small business via Lemonade Day. She launched her lemonade stand Lemonade Day Weekend, and it was an awesome success. She reached her goals – which were buying a Super Mario Bros. Wii game, give a little to charity, and save a little for a trip to Disney World.

This was the first year, so we had absolutely nothing. So, I launched an online campaign through indiegogo.com to raise funds for her capital equipment and consumable supplies. We were able to raise enough money to purchase all the things she needed to start out her business – Angel's Lemonade!

I re-launched her campaign, because so many people still wanted to make a donation to help her raise funds for her Disney World trip. As we continue to set up and sell her sweet lemonade during the summer, she may just pull off raising enough money to go to Disney World during winter break!
