When you were a child you probably had the unique and sure to be profitable idea to start a lemonade stand. And like many other children, you went through the process like a young Mark Zukerberg, planning every detail to make it work.
Gathering your supplies for your new-found entrepreneurial project, your seven year-old self just knew you were going to make a killing off this venture. While you mixed your big pitcher of Country Time Lemonade you started to think of everyone that was going to mosey up to your kid-friendly bar and partake in a sweet and tangy cocktail. Making a mental checklist of all of your closest friends in the neighborhood that would support your new establishment, you hope that they pass along the news of the new watering hole on the block. And then when you finally have your parent’s card table set up with your full pitcher and needed supplies, you start to tally up your future profits and more importantly how you were going to spend your earnings.
Well what if that all happened but instead of taking your cash-stuffed Velcro wallet to the store to buy a new Strawberry Shortcake Doll or Star Wars Light Saber, you instead donated it to a worthy cause.
Really, a child would do that?!?!
Well that’s exactly what a little girl I know does every year for a very worthwhile foundation. Sweet little Jessica Kuca holds a lemonade stand at her home in O’Fallon, IL in hopes of raising money for Pediatric Cancer and Breast Cancer. Along with her lemonade stand, Jessica has a raffle so that even more money can be donated. And with the help of her mom, Mary Jo Guinn, Jessica has raised over $5,500 and counting.
Can I just say…Wow!
So Bada Bling Boutique is asking if you too would please support this great little girl’s project in hope of getting just a little bit closer to that day that our world is cancer-free.
Until next time chicas…
Bling It On!!!
