We don’t take our health for granted in this family, because we’ve been through enough to know what a gift it is!
As a mom, I can’t imagine the nightmare of having a child diagnosed with cancer. So when Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill + Bar reached out to us about helping promote their month-long fundraising campaign with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation we were immediately on board.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation was established in 2005 to continue the mission of four-year-old Alex, who while fighting her own battle against cancer, set up a lemonade stand to help raise money for “doctors to find a cure” for all childhood cancers. For the past 15 years, Applebee’s has teamed up with the foundation to raise over $8.2 million dollars to help fund cutting-edge medical research. This year’s goal is to raise more than $1 million dollars for pediatric cancer research and family support programs. You can watch a great video about the campaign here.
Through Sunday, August 11 you can support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in Applebee’s restaurants nationwide by 1.) Purchasing lemon-shaped pin-up cards in $1 and $5 increments or 2.) Purchasing a Lemonade Quencher, new Rainbow Lemonade or regular lemonade refreshment to have a portion of the proceeds donated.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it into a restaurant though! You can still contribute by visiting Applebees.com/AlexsLemonade to find a local participating restaurant and learn about additional ways to join in the fundraising efforts.
