First Stand for Kindness: Success!

I just have a few minutes here before my husband whisks his computer away but I just wanted to quickly post that we had our first sale and it went very well. We raised $28.25 selling vegan, organic and Fair Trade goodies to the fine citizens of Oak Park. Not bad for a little lemonade stand!

The kids had a great time pitching the treats and it was nice to get a chance to meet others in the community. We also handed out lots of Vegetarian Starter Kits along with our snacks before we were told that we had to close up shop because it was on Park District property. We made it for 3 1/2 hours, though! One of our ongoing issues is going to be finding spaces where we can operate our stand without stepping on anyone's toes. We're working on it. Any advice is appreciated.

Until next time!

Wow! Great job, especially for your first time out! Imagine how much you would have made if they hadn't made you leave.

Hope you find a great place for next time.

You're changing the world. Be proud!!!!!
