This Saturday, August 10th, Annelie and her friend, Shirley, will be hosting a lemonade stand for Peace and Equality!
They will be serving fresh squeezed organic lemonade and lemon iced cupcakes in exchange for $1 contributions to the Planting Peace organization and the Equality House which is a symbol of compassion, peace, and positive change. The house, which is painted the colors of the Pride flag, serves as the resource center for all Planting Peace equality and anti-bullying initiatives and stands as a visual reminder of our commitment, as global citizens, to equality for all. - See more at: http://www.plantingpeace.org/equality.htm#sthash.WZ9GHNA8.dpuf
Just this week at dinner Annelie asked/attempted to confirm that two girls can get married if they are best friends. Sean replied: We're working on that.
Please stop by to support their stand and support everyone in this country having the opportunity to marry their best friend!

On June 14, 2013, Jayden, a 5 1/2 year old girl, set up a lemonade stand on the front lawn of the Equality House. Little did she know how huge of a national success it would become. Jayden was even honored as one of MSNBC's Footsoldiers! Since that day, she has raised over $22,000 for Planting Peace. Jayden saw how powerful philanthropy can be, so she decided to come back for a second lemonade stand! Only this time, she wants to invite you and your kids to get involved too! On August 10th, we invite children all over the country to set up their own lemonade stands in their own neighborhoods to join Jayden in her movement for peace. To get your child involved, simply select "fundraise for this campaign" to register your stand, and tell your friends! At the end of the day, you can use your fundraiser to submit the funds you raised! Happy lemonade selling! Peace to all :)
