What is #LemonAID
#LemonAID is YOUR opportunity to give back to families of fallen soldiers over Memorial Day Weekend! Memorial Day was always meant to be more than just the official kick-off for summer, a day to hang out at the beach, or bar-b-que with friends. On Memorial Day, we should stop and reflect on the lives lost defending our nation. #LemonAID gives parents an opportunity to teach their children about the cost of our freedoms and families a fun way to honor these fallen soldiers and their families!
It's simple. Purchase your t-shirts and register your stand. Host a #LemonAID stand anywhere over Memorial Day Weekend your driveway, a local park, shopping center, or even a place of business! We'll send you marketing materials and you collect funds from your #LemonAID stand patrons. At the end of your stand, donate your earnings online to Believe With Me!
Your #LemonAID stand could be as simple or as ornate as you want. By registering your stand, you will be entering the contest for "Cutest Stand" and also a separate contest for "Most Funds Raised!" #LemonAID is a great way to teach your children patriotism, entrepreneurialism, and selflessness! Host as many stands as you would like over the weekend- any time between Friday, May 28th- Monday, May 31st!
#LemonAID Goal: A New Home for a Gold Star Family
Our first #LemonAID event was 2017. With passionate parents, hardworking kids, and a few businesses on board, we raised just over $10,000. In 2018, that total more than doubled to $22,000. Help us make 2021 a banner year!
We are hoping to raise $30,000 this Memorial Day Weekend! With your help, we'll be able to provide so much needed help our Gold Star Family community.
Believe With Me wants to use funds raised during #LemonAID to restore a local Gold Star Family to homeownership, provide gifts for children of the fallen at Christmas, and give aid to those Gold Star Families in financial crisis.
Your #LemonAID kit will include:
The number of t-shirts you order!
Believe With Me informational cards to give to #LemonAID patrons!
Freedom 4 Miler cards to encourage participation in our July 4th run. Not local? No problem! Run virtually! Still get the race bib, t-shirt, and medal!
