Sunkist Take A Stand Campaign + A Sunkist Giveaway (Win a Lemonade Stand, Kit, & gift card!) @sunkist #sweepstakes

Posted on Aug 20 2012 - 12:42pm by Heather Brummett

When I think back on summers as a child one thing I remember is lemonade stands. My brothers and I would make cold drinks and set up a crazy table aka stand. We would sell for pennies. It was so much fun! What better way to spend a hot summer day than with a cold, refreshing drink!

The award-winning Sunkist Take A Stand ® campaign is back this summer with an exciting twist! Starting now, Sunkist Growers is encouraging families across the country to host a fresh lemonade sale to raise money for a charity close to their hearts with help from free online tools and new special edition stands.

Online tools to prepare for a lemonade sale such as poster, recipes, and pricing tracker are available for a free download. And because sometimes it’s just more fun to have an “official” lemonade stand for selling, Sunkist is releasing new, limited edition 2012 stands that will spark creativity and help kids personalize their charitable giving efforts. The freshly redesigned stands are one-piece, easy to assemble and each comes with a festive lemonade-themed sticker sheet. Kids can color the stickers with markers, add extra drawings and messages that highlight their personal cause and ultimately create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, sure to grab the attention of the neighborhood.

imageSince 2004, the Sunkist Take a Stand program has motivated more than 65,000 kids from the U.S. and Canada to sign up to “take a stand” for charity. Open to ages 7-12, the campaign has raised an estimated $3 million dollars for charity over the past nine years, one glass of fresh Sunkist at a time.

According to Giving USA, an annual report on American philanthropy, for the second year in a row, charitable giving barely grew, rising by just 0.9 percent in 2011. In an effort to boost interest in fundraising for good causes, Sunkist will give away ten lemonade stands a week from July 18, 2012 through August 28, 2012.Fans can enter to win by visiting Facebook submitting the charity they would like to support.

Alternatively, TWO readers here at Living on Love & Cents have a chance to win their own stand as well as a starter kit featuring delicious recipes for fresh-squeezed lemonade and a $20 gift card for supplies.
Isn’t this exciting! Win your very own stand, kit and money to let your kids create a one of a kind Lemonade Stand! Your kids will LOVE this!
