Not only do our lemonades taste good…they do good!
All profits from your purchase of these Florida's Natural lemonades go to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to help fund lifesaving research and improve the lives of children currently battling cancer.
Because like us, Alexandra "Alex" Scott firmly believed in the old saying "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade," and she decided to do just that the day after her fourth birthday.
That was the day Alex received an experimental treatment for neuroblastoma—the most common cancer found in children and infants. During her treatment, Alex told her parents that she wanted to open a lemonade stand so she could help raise money for other children who had cancer.
With determination, gumption, and a LOT of lemons, the front-yard lemonade stand that Alex started with her brother would go on to raise thousands of dollars for her hospital, and ultimately spark something more: a legacy.
As fate would have it, word got around about Alex's stand…and her story. Children across the country built lemonade stands in her honor, and donated their proceeds to pediatric cancer research. Notable media figures took notice and promoted her cause, and our Florida's Natural family of growers rallied in support of this brave girl who devoted her brief life to making a difference.
After her passing, Alex's parents decided to continue the work their daughter had begun, and started Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, an organization dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for childhood cancer by funding research, as well as supporting and providing resources to families that are affected by childhood cancer.
Since 2005, the foundation has raised over $100 million, and funded over 500 cutting-edge and lifesaving research projects and treatments.
We invite you to take a stand, and join us in the fight against childhood cancer. Learn how you can host your own lemonade stand for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, read all about Alex and ALSF, and make a donation by visiting www.alexslemonade.org.
