Hey everyone!! Make sure you’re available to stop by on Thursday May 23rd between 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm to make a poster for Lemonade for Love.
What is the poster party, exactly?!
It’s a tradition! Each child/youth is invited to make their own custom invitation to the lemonade stand.
They create a picture on-site and when they submit it, the Lemonade for Love team takes it, puts all of the important information on the back, and photocopies it. The posters are returned 1-2 weeks later.
When the child/youth receive their copies they are responsible for handing them out to friends, classmates, and neighbours. If they are volunteering at the stand they get to invite people to the stand. Lemonade for Love belongs to everyone. Simple!
The Poster Party is also a chance to sign up for volunteer jobs and poster delivery zones. It’s a great reason to get out out on your bikes or for a walk, and connect with the community.
We can’t wait to see you in a few weeks. If you have any questions, drop us a note in the comments.

We are pleased to announce that @lemonadeforlove, with the help of our sponsors, our community, and the dollar-for-dollar match by @morcan_direct, has raised just north of $25,000 for the #captainxavierfund at #silvercreekpreschool in Etobicoke! . Thank you to everyone who championed the kids, who pitched in by sharing a tweet, telling a friend, or helping us set up another tent when the rain started. This is a true collective effort from everyone in our community. It doesn’t happen without you. We also hope that the kids felt good about giving back! . Be happy knowing that you will make an impact in the lives of families in our community. . Thank you! 📷: @angela.cheyne . . . #lemondeforlove #lemonadestand #givingback #etobicoke #kidshelpingkids

What a day! . Well, you guys, it rained, and it rained HARD! 🌧 It was cold and wet, but the neighborhood showed its true blue colours and @lemonadeforlove had an incredible show of support. (And we were pretty impressed with the showing of raincoat fashions! You guys are stylin’!) . We started this lemonade stand five years ago with a box of tarts, 5 Litres of lemonade, and a goal of $300.00. I’m going to tell you that we were nervous to say the goal amount out loud because it seemed a bit lofty and a bit bold. . We do not have our total of online donations available as of yet. We will receive those on Monday. However, our initial number, today, taking into count @morcan_direct’s offer to match donations, is just over $17,000!💥 . That means that since that first lemonade-stand five years ago we as a collective have raised and re-invested over $50,000 back into our community. . Money aside, I think we have a community that is special, unique and is something we should all be incredibly proud to call our own. . Thank you. . . #lemonadeforlove2018 xo
