Making & Selling Lemonade For A Cause

Last week I shared with you the mission of Sunkist and Take a Stand for Charities. I told you about the 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. We are giving away these lemonade stands here.

The same lemonade stand that we are giving away to two of you arrived for us last week. It arrived during school hours so as soon as the school bus dropped of the kids we went to work. My two little ones had a blast decorating the stand to suite their style. They decided that the money would go to church and that they would charge $.25 each.

We used freshly squeezed lemons. I also sliced a few for a pretty touch and extra flavor.

The kids used the included items to make their custom stand.


Then it was time to sell! The whole neighborhood showed up for some homemade lemonade!

The kids couldn’t resist drinking some their selves during the down time. Look at that smile.


The Sunkist Take A Stand ® campaign is awesome! Be sure to enter to win an official lemonade stand. Let the creative fruity juices start flowing and get your kids involved in the fun. This is a perfect way to teach them about giving back and helping others!

I received this stand for the purpose of this review and post. No monetary compensation was received. All opinions are 100% mine and honest.
