How to Help Boise Kids Get Their Own Lemonade Day
Kids can set up cute and creative lemonade stands all over town if we become an official Lemonade Day city. But right now, Boise has been left off the list.
Lemonade Day is coming up in early May (usually the first Sunday), and Boise kids won't be able to set up a stand unless we do something about it now.
At last check, La Grande, OR, and Casper, WY had become official Lemonade Day cities, and those were the closest ones to the Treasure Valley. Seriously!
To make Lemonade Day happen here, we can contact organizers at LemonadeDay.org and tell them we're interested in making it happen in Boise. Why not?! And of course, Eagle, Caldwell, Nampa, Meridian, Star, and any of our awesome Idaho neighbors can do it too. We could have every city blanketed with lemonade stands on Sunday, May 2. The weather will be warmer, we will be thirsty, and it helps kids learn skills that will help them win at life.
Lemonade Day gives kids the chance to show off their entrepreneurial skills, it helps them set goals, develop a business plan, establish a budget, and provide good customer service. It first launched in Houston, TX in 2007, and since then it's "grown from serving 2,700 kids in one city to 1 million children across North America," according to LemonadeDay.org.
Teachers can even register an entire class to be part of Lemonade Day, and they'll be equipped with lessons through a digital app or through a workbook.
But first, we've got to bring Lemonade Day to Boise. Click HERE to help make it happen.
