On May 5th Nicholas, above, participated in Lemonade Day Boston sponsored by Babson College by having this FANTASTIC lemonade stand in front of our Wellesley store. What a budding entrepreneur!
On that Saturday, there were nearly 1,000 lemonade stands launched by Boston area kids. The event was attended by Babson President Schlesinger, Former New England Patriot founder, Matt Chatham, Lisa Donovan of Kiss 108’s Matty in the Morning Show and Chacarero Owner, Juan Hurtado. It was a success!
The idea of the event is to teach: “business basics, teamwork and self-direction to elementary and middle school students. Lemonade Day also teaches the power of philanthropy…” Children had the option of sharing a portion of their earnings with local charities.
We hope to see dozens of more lemonade stands as the season warms up to a peak! And what a great idea to not only help your kids realize that they have the power to earn money, but to then encourage them to give a portion to charity (no matter how small). Send us photos of your own lemonade stands throughout the summer or post to our facebook wall. We would love to see!Tags: entrepreneurialship, Lemonade Day Boston
