Sunkist Growers is once again promoting their Take A Stand campaign, a program started almost 10 years ago to help kids raise money for a charity of their choice by selling fresh Sunkist lemonade.
Since 2004, the Sunkist Take a Stand program has motivated more than 65,000 kids from the U.S. and Canada to sign up to “take a stand” for charity.
Sunkist has given free lemonade stands to help kids ages 7-12 raise an estimated $3 million dollars for good causes such as neighborhood animal shelters, local soup kitchens and major health organizations.
What a great way for parents and others to get children involved in something bigger than themselves.
My daughter is a couple of years away from being able to participate, but this is something I can see us doing together along with her cousin. While I have charities that are near and dear to my heart, I can’t wait for her to come up with a charity she feels strongly about.
To help start a lemonade stand:

- Pricing Tracker
- Safety Tips
- Help on choosing a charity
Sometimes it’s more fun to have an “official” lemonade stand for selling, so Sunkist has released new, limited edition 2012 stands. The freshly redesigned stands are one-piece, easy to assemble and each comes with a festive lemonade-themed sticker sheet. Kids can color the stickers with markers, add extra drawings and messages that highlight their personal cause and ultimately create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, sure to grab the attention of the neighbors.
NOTE: Sunkist will give away ten lemonade stands a week through August 28, 2012.Fans can enter to win by visiting Sunkist on Facebook and submitting the charity they would like to support.
