THE STORY:

On July 1st, 2013 an 8 year autistic boy and his two sisters were selling lemonade in Oshawa, Canada to raise money for Sick Kids Hospital, when a cranky neighbor called 911 to file a noise complaint. Police were called and the lemonade stand was shut down.

While having dinner with my 6 year old son I noticed the front page article and read it to my son. He asked me why someone would call 911 on kids selling lemonade. The first time I didn't have an answer for my child. I am provided with a position within an incredible brand to make a difference and lead by example for my son Brayden. I have attached every news article that I found, as this story has gone viral globally. Let's encourage all kids to lead by the Potter's kids example to make a difference in this world, while not allowing others to get in your way of your goals and accomplishments.
