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!
What do you and your students get by participating?
* The knowledge that you have helped others who are in need
* The satisfaction of feeling a part of something bigger than yourself
* The opportunity to support research and awareness to help end childhood cancer
* The ability to demonstrate good citizenship and community service
* The learning experience of working as a team for a greater good helping children around the world
Won't you join us???

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. For more information: http://www.alexslemonade.org
