Teaching Story - Lemonade for a cause
by Life Positive
Did you ever set up a lemonade stand when you were a kid? Plenty of us did – and, by the end of the day, if we were very lucky, we had made enough cash to buy a few days' worth of ice cream treats.
Not Jack Yeilding: A few days ago, this five-year-old boy from Oakville, Ontario, raised a staggering $41,233 from two lemonade stands and a charity car wash, with all proceeds going to fund Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, where Jack, who has intractable epilepsy, is a frequent patient.
This was Jack's second year in a row hosting the Lemonade Stand for Sick Kids event, and the whole town seemed to turn up to show their support: More than 1,000 people came to the lemonade stand in front of his home on Saturday. "Despite his medical condition, Jack is determined to turn his lemons into lemonade by holding an annual lemonade stand to help his friends at Sick Kids," Jack's mother, Jodi Yeilding said. We'll drink (lemonade) to that!
