When Life Deals you a Lemonade Strawesome

Introducing The Lemonade Straw for a Cause

When refreshing lemons and Strawesome limited editions can team up to benefit a cause as important as this, it’s a win/win.
As Childhood Cancer Awareness month comes to a close, we’re proud to announce our support of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), which emerged from the front-yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra Scott (1996-2004) who announced in 2000 that she would sell lemonade to raise money with the goal of curing all children with cancer.

The mission of this charity continues as two parts: to fund awareness of childhood cancer causes and support new treatments and cures, and to encourage and empower others to raise money by holding their own Alex’s Lemonade Stands.

We’ve crafted a kid-size lemon-adorned straw with blue accents that will remind you of lemonade stands all year ‘round, and of how one little front-yard idea can inspire so many great things. Click here to view The Lemonade Straw inspired by Alex and her mission. Strawesome will donate $7 from each sale of this limited-edition cause straw to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Having a child fighting cancer is one of the toughest situations a family can face. By contributing to this project, you’re supporting programs that help families in crisis as well as working towards a cancer-free future.

  1. On September 11th the kids participated in the church’s annual event called “A Day in the Park!” The youth group partnered with the Civilian Foundation for one day of special programming dedicated to children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities. The verse for the day was 1 Peter 4:10: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Each youth portrayed an example of servant hood to all the participants. One parent was very grateful about how her son was being treated with the person hood he deserved. Too often she had been disappointed by his treatment from others. She gushed about how welcoming and inclusive our group was. All the youth did an amazing job of having a spirit of positivity!

  2. I am such a fan of Strawesome. Their family run company and healthy impact on the environment and our health. I am so glad to see they are supporting such a worthy cause. My 5 year old niece is always wanting to use my colorful straws so if I won I would buy her one of her own. God bless.

  4. My son collected a ton of toys that he still likes but doesn’t feel he needs to donate to charity. He has a big heart!

  5. My son always has a pile of clothes and toys to give “to a kid who needs them.” He’s very thoughtful about it, saying things like, “I still love Bear, but he’d be better for a little kid who doesn’t have any bears.” So cute! We try to instill in him that we have so many things because we’re blessed and we want to bless others as much as we can!

    And speaking of blessing, it’d be a great blessing to win the Strawesome gift certificate! 🙂 Great blog post & great cause. Keep up the good work, Strawesome!

  6. My daughters get really excited picking out toys and clothes for a child in need at Christmas time. My oldest saw an abandoned house the other day and thought someone was living in it and insisted thAt her dad go straight to the grocery store to buy them food. I hope to continue teaching them the importance of giving.

  7. This is the 3rd year my granddaughters, 6 and 8, have sold items and donated the money. The first year it was Mistletoe and they donated to Toys for Tots. Also sold the peaches from their tree and donated the money. The last 2 years, myself and my brother, grow pumpkins. The girls sell them for a donation. The first year they were able to buy needed items for the PE class at school. Last year over $500 was raised, 2 1/2 violins were purchased for the school music program. I just dropped off 60 pumpkins, another project begins. I’m very proud of these 2 girls.
