THE STORY:

This is a fundraiser for Autism. Last summer, a little girl started a lemonade stand to donate to her local provider for Autism services. Read her letter below.  

My Lemonade Stand for Charity

By Lexi Pereira

My name is Lexi and I am nine years old. One morning I told my mom that I wanted to do a lemonade stand for charity. We talked about the different kinds of charities. Since my younger sister, Ellie, has Autism, and I have Asperger’s Syndrome which is a kind of mild Autism, I thought I should give to a charity that helps other kids with Autism.

So we bought some supplies. My mom, brother, and I started to make some lemonade. We made signs and went outside to start selling. I soon had my first customer.

I sold my lemonade in the afternoons and evenings from June until the middle of July. Some days I had more customers than others. People were very generous. Some people came back every day and one man even gave me twenty dollars!

At the end, I was so close to one hundred dollars that my dad said he would donate the last three dollars. Then I had one hundred dollars to donate. I decided to give that money to Gateways Community services in Nashua which is the place where my sister’s therapists work. They do a lot for kids with Autism, and I wanted to give back to them.

Thank you people of Merrimack! I couldn’t have done it without you.

Her letter was also featured in the local news:

Since lemonade stands are seasonal, I thought I'd help build her a virtual one so that she could continue to raise money for her cause. Since she sold her lemonade for 50 cents a cup, each dollar you help her raise is "2 cups of (virtual) lemonade." Let's help her sell more lemonade cups than any child in history.
