What a great afternoon! My fun friend Diana (that's for you, Brian) is so philanthropic and inspired our Domino's group to sell lemonade to "squeeze out pediatric cancer". The program is sponsored by the Children's Miracle Network and I can't think of a better way to get kids involved in helping other kids. This weekend, there will be 700 LemonAid stands in Virginia. Each one dedicated to helping eradicate pediatric cancer.
We decided to call our stand, Domino Kids. I volunteered for decorations and had fun with the signage. Our stand was in a genius location and at our shift this afternoon, we raised $40. Shifts begin again tomorrow and will end on Sunday afternoon. Such a fantastic learning experience for our kids- and a feel so proud of yourself moment for each of us as well. We are all so blessed to be healthy and to be able to help those who are in need.
Diana and I worked together tonight and the kids were troopers. Simon and Cooper got off to a slow start....
but were soon pouring lemonade, taking donations, making change, and handing out stickers to the fantastic folks who stopped to support this worthy cause. We had a great time (we even had some support from the KING himself- thank you very much)!
