SUBSCRIBE to BYOU Magazine and Support Alex’s Lemonade Stand!
Bailee Madison, our May/June 2014 cover story, is a passionate supporter of the charity Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Bailee was very moved to hear the story of four-year-old cancer patient Alex Scott, who in 2000 announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for children with cancer, including herself.
In 2004, Alex set a huge goal – with the help of volunteers, she wanted to raise $1 million to fight childhood cancer. Alex reached her million dollar goal just before losing her life to cancer and her dream continues to live on. Alex’s Lemonade Stand has grown into a national fundraising movement and volunteers across the country run Alex’s Lemonade Stands to help raise funds and awareness of the cause. In 2013, there were more than 8,000 lemonade stand events.
To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $75 million toward Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 375 pediatric cancer research projects! As a spokesperson for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Bailee Madison helps host fundraisers and lemonade stands around the country. She invites YOU to join her in supporting Alex and her dream of fighting childhood cancer by hosting your own lemonade stand this summer! Find out more at AlexsLemonade.org.
