This is my grandson, Jeff, AKA “Jellybean.” He is running a lemonade stand for Michigan’s Lemonade Day on June 6, 2015! Please see the flyer below for full details. [My book “My Alzheimer’s Diary” will be released June 21st]
80% of his proceeds will be donated to the Michigan #Alzheimers Association in honor of my mother Lebertis Wright and my brother Roland Knight. We lost them both to this tragic disease. Jelly is holding their obituaries in the picture. My grandmother, Annie McDonald Knight had Alzheimer’s, too. Jelly has participated in Lemonade Day for several years now for different charities. What is Lemonade Day?
” In 2007, founder Michael Holthouse had a vision to empower today’s youth to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs through helping them start, own and operate their very own business…a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day is a strategic 14-step process that walks youth from a dream to a business plan, while teaching them the same principles required to start any big company. Inspiring kids to work hard and make a profit, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some by giving back to their community. Since it’s launch in 2007 in Houston Texas, Lemonade Day has grown from serving 2,700 kids in one city to over 800,000 children across North America.” – From http://www.Lemonadeday.org
