Lemonade Day is Back: Kickoff Party March 5!
Pictured: Teddy in 2018, already ready to BE THE BOSS! 😉
I’m very excited to share that Lemonade Day Wichita Falls is coming back for its SIXTH year, and it’s my third year to be involved in an official capacity!
(To be specific, my employer, Texoma Community Credit Union, became the title sponsor in 2018, and me and my marketing assistant Leah are also donating our time and marketing expertise to this amazing nonprofit!)
What is Lemonade Day and Why Should You Care?
Lemonade Day is a fun, experiential program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business: a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day’s program builds self-reliance and financial literacy, and introduces important business and entrepreneurial skills. Children experience a new level of confidence and see possibilities for their future – as leaders, volunteers, and forward-thinking citizens.
Lemonade Day is a nonprofit but it is NOT a fundraiser. Young entrepreneurs who start a stand KEEP the profits they earn. The purpose is educational. (And fun!) Anyone can join, and there is no participation fee.
Special Note: The program works best students in third grade and above, but can be adjusted to any age. (Lessons on planning the stand may have to be modified accordingly.) My son turned 4 in November and is still a little young, but I can’t wait until he’s older so he can participate too!
