We can say that right?! Lemonade for Love is Toronto’s favourite lemonade stand run by kids. Heck, let’s own it!
Mark your calendars for our sixth annual Lemonade for Love happening on Saturday June 22nd, 2019 from 9am – 12pm at Fairfield Park in Toronto’s west end. (Etobicoke)
About Lemonade for Love
We are thankful to live in a community that supports initiatives such as Lemonade for Love. The more we ask around, the more we realize how unique and special this is. Thank you.
Lemonade for Love started on our front yard in 2014. It moved to our friends front yard in 2015, and it eventually got too big for anyone’s front yard! So, we moved it to Fairfield Park. Fairfield Park is the absolute perfect fit.
We value volunteers
We are excited to welcome back our volunteers this year. [Quick fact It takes approximately 45 volunteers to help us run the stand the day of!] The best way to get involved as a volunteer is to attend our Poster Party which will be in the neighbourhood on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019 from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm. The poster party is an opportunity for kids to learn more about Lemonade for Love, create their own hand-drawn invitation to distribute to their friends, neighbours, and family, as well as sign up for delivery zones and volunteer jobs. We are 100% volunteer driven and rely on everyone’s willingness to pitch in!
We are trying a few new things this year.
We are trying a few new things this year with the stand. Many of the kids who started with Lemonade for Love in 2014 are growing up and are ready to take on bigger leadership roles when it comes to supporting the stand.
We are running a trial ‘kids committee’ to empower the kids with information about the stand, and to give them a voice on what they want to see come out of the stand. Their goal is to ensure that everyone thinks of Lemonade for Love as his/her own and that everyone feels welcome to join and participate with the stand. The committee is comprised of kids from each school in the community. It’s been an interesting process! We are sharing some behind the scenes of the kid’s committee on our Instagram and Facebook stories. We encourage you to keep an eye there to see how it is going. Once we fine=tune this process we’d like to involve even more kids in the process.
We support Silver Creek Pre School
Finally, we are pleased to have partnered with Silver Creek Pre School once again, and we look forward to supporting the #CaptainXavierFund. The fund was inspired by Xavier who is a boy that lives in our community. At a very young age, Xavier was diagnosed with Sandhoff Disease. He attended Silver Creek and his family was touched with the caring staff and the support they received. Xavier’s uncle started the fund and the money used helps pay for children’s tuition. We are passionate about supporting the school and the fund, and we thank the staff and families of Silver Creek for being such incredible event supporters.
And so, here we go again! If you are interested in helping out this year, please send a note to our firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in sponsoring the event this year, we invite you to review our sponsorship opportunities. Finally, please be sure to follow us on all of our social channels @lemonadeforlove for our updates.
Thank you! xo
