Kids’ Corner: Lemonade for Haiti

Hi! My name is Harley! Let’s have a chat. Do you know where Haiti is?

If not, ask your parents.

I found out though Idlewild Baptist that the people in Haiti don’t have enough food and water. So I brainstormed with my friends. We talked about it, had conversations about it, discussions about it, etc. We made pictures, sketches, and price lists, etc. Then we built a lemonade stand. We got a lot of banners, supplies, paper fans, triple chocolate chunk brownies, M&M Rice Krispies, etc. Saturday morning, I got up and some of my friends came over to help work the lemonade stand. There was a little blue tent over the lemonade stand. There were white cute dessert holders, colorful napkins, and there was a beautiful tablecloth, it was yellow. We had freshly-squeezed and Countryside lemonade mix because it would raise more money. We all wore Belle dresses and we looked like cute little lemons! People gave tips for $20 bills because they saw us on the news. We raised $500 and we are going to send the money to Haiti! It helped feed 100 people for a month!

Since I gave all I had to Haiti my parents gifted me with a $20 bill and I did not expect it! And I got $25 and $20 checks from different states because they saw me on the news and knew it was for a great cause. Greg & Maria Shepherd are part of RTS Missions which supports Haiti.
