This is still one of my favorite sites on the web.... They have added a very cool decentralized "Hold a stand" page to accelerate the spread of the lemonade stands to a national and international venues. I thought I would revisit after the Kentucky Derby winner donated $5,000 to the stand. It is great work.
Alex’s fundraising efforts have gone way beyond raising thousands of dollars for her favorite charities. Her story has inspired people to improve our world by helping themselves and helping others. Many other children have held their own fundraisers, in Alex’s name, to fight childhood cancer. These range from holding lemonade stands to forgoing birthday presents and having donations go to Alex's Fund to creating an Awesome Alex Teddy Bear to loose change collections along with many other fundraisers. On August 1, 2004, Alex died peacefully at the age of 8 after battling cancer for 7 years. Alex’s spirited determination to raise awareness and money for all childhood cancer while she bravely fought her own deadly battle with cancer has inspired thousands of people, from all walks of life to raise money and give to her cause. Alex’s family and supporters are committed to continuing her inspiring legacy through the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
