Dear Supporter of Lemonaide and Kids Helping Kids,
On behalf of Kids Helping Kids, Inc., we are asking for your support of the 19th Annual (Virtual) Lemonaide event and our efforts to raise money for nonprofits that help Alexandria children in need.
Kids Helping Kids is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization started by Alexandria kids in 2002 that typically sponsors a city-wide event in May called Lemonaide. In a normal year, kids throughout Alexandria participate by setting up lemonade stands to raise money to help other Alexandria kids.
This year, kids can’t set up physical lemonade stands, but they are still finding creative ways to help other kids, including hosting virtual lemonaide stands where they will deliver “to go” lemonades to friends and family who donate.
Lemonaide provides an opportunity for families and local businesses to support Alexandria kids, not only through direct donations to organizations committed to improving the lives of Alexandria’s kids, but also by supporting the efforts of local kids to make a positive change in our city.
The funds that Lemonaide raises this year will be donated to two local nonprofits committed to improving the lives of Alexandria’s children.
Since 2002, Kids Helping Kids has raised over $220,000 for a variety of children’s charities in Alexandria including (among others) Alexandria Police Foundation, Alexandria Tutoring Consortium, ALIVE! Child Development Center, Carpenter’s Shelter, Center for Alexandria’s Children, Child & Family Network Centers, Coats for Kids, Community Lodgings, Fund for Alexandria’s Child, Grandma Rita’s Children, Healthy Families Alexandria, Liberty’s Promise, Space of Her Own, Wright to Read, and YoKid.
We hope we can count on your support during this very important year to help us reach our goal of raising $15,000.
