Once we finished construction on our newly re-purposed lemonade stand, I immediately started working with Janie Kathryn on a strategy to attract customers. She thought it was a good idea to add cookies to the menu. After all, Daddy did add that nifty shelf to the stand. I proposed that Janie Kathryn choose a worthy cause to which we could donate a portion of the proceeds. The Easter Bunny did just lavish her with gifts. Her basket overfloweth, why not pay it forward. So, after careful consideration we landed on the Mid-South Food Bank.
The plan was developed. It was time to move on to marketing. What better way to get the word out than to spread it on facebook? Turns out a sweet little girl's entrepreneurial endeavor and a worthy cause motivate a lot of friends (and a few strangers) to brave the rush hour traffic to buy a cup of lemonade.
Food For Kids Backpack Program provides food for children in our community that do not have enough to eat. We discovered that peanut butter is a hot commodity. The shelf was bare.
Will we do this again? Absolutely! Keep an out for our next facebook event notice! Perhaps, there's a peanut butter drive in our future.
