8 Year Old Makes 2k With Lemonade Stand For Charity


8-year-old Max Rickets of Ardmore, Oklahoma, figured out a way to turn lemons into lemonade … for those in need. Max set up a lemonade stand in hopes of raising money for a nearby homeless shelter and word spread quickly about his kind gesture. Nearly 200 people showed up – and Max was able to raise more than $600. But, that wasn’t the end of the effort. Max’s mom, Ariel, got the word out about the effort and some local businesses stepped up, matching all the earnings. When the day was done, Max was able to donate about $2,000 total. Max was so excited about being able to help so much that he plans to hold his stand again – with plans of selling seasonal drinks like hot chocolate and apple cider in the near future.
