Please join us TODAY Tuesday May 8th from 11am - 12pm EDT for the kick-off of the 2012 Alex's Virtual Lemonade Stand project! Join schools from around the world on their two week journey to help raise money to fund pediatric cancer research and end childhood cancers worldwide. We'll also get to talk live with Liz Scott, Alex's mom, who will share Alex's simple dream of raising money to help support doctors who help children like her. Liz will also share a live reading of Alex and the Amazing Lemonade Stand! with participating schools. Then we'll have our Spirit Rally to get our schools ready to start their two week journey of selling lemonade and making a difference one cup at a time!
Anyone anywhere in the world can tune in to the kick-off event and spirit rally event LIVE today at 11am EDT by watching the LIVE Webstream at http://video.magpi.net/videos and clicking on Live Videos. And, tweet and follow the event using hashtag #AlexsLemonade.
Alex's Virtual Lemonade Stand 2012: Kids Helping Kids Make a Difference!
When life gives you lemons... make lemonade!
Inspired by the journey of Philadelphia-area hero Alex Scott, the Alex's Virtual Lemonade Stand Project celebrates the idea that just one kid can make a difference. Join schools from around the world to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research, all while participating in standards-based projects that make the process both inspiring and fun. It's all about kids helping kids - - and we want you to get involved!
As part of this two week program, each participating school will hold their own lemonade stands to help raise funds for pediatric cancer. Schools can hold one big lemonade stand day or a series of lemonade stand events throughout the two weeks. They will be able to communicate and interact with one another through a project blog, student-created videos, poster contest and special videoconference events!
MAGPI is pleased to once again bring you this project in partnership with the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Alex's Lemonade Stand is a national organization with Greater Philadelphia roots. The organization grew out of the front yard lemonade stand started by Alexandra “Alex” Scott, a pediatric cancer patient. In 2000, at the age of four, Alex opened her first annual lemonade stand with high hopes of raising money for pediatric cancer causes. Every year thereafter, Alex held an annual lemonade stand in her Pennsylvania front yard and inspired others to donate money to her cause.
