Inspiration for Today: Lemonade

Drew with his younger brothers

After his father was diagnosed with cancer, 6 year old Drew Cox set up a lemonade stand to raise money to help his family with medical bills. With the support of friends, classmates, and neighbors, Drew attracted a lot of customers, and this brought his cause to the attention of media and new fans. A family friend followed Drew’s lead by starting an online request for donations.

Sparked by a young boy’s simple idea and desire to help, the family has raised more than $10,000. Click here or on the picture to learn more about Drew and watch a video about his lemonade stand.

If you are planning a fundraiser of your own, consider supporting Lifeline Project participants.
