Amanda’s Lemonade Stand is STILL participating at
We plan to have a lemonade stand at the events and need families, kids, anyone to help run them - they can support the heart charities (of of the 6) or a charity that is close to their heart - it’s a fun way to get out and be involved and we still need some people to help run these…Minute Maid will be providing the lemonade for us and Metro will provide the cookies so all is good -we just need peeps to run them with us
Please let us know if you are available to be involved and also that you are still on board for the big event next Spring
The date has been changed for the Guinness World Record event for the longest line of lemonade stands in the world, for the Most Charities Supported at one time and place.
The interest and support for the idea has been truly wonderful but we have also received a lot of feedback from many companies and charities that they would love to be involved but need more time to get their teams on board and to raise the funds and get the word out, so it makes sense that we make it the large amazing event that it should be and give people more time to plan.
Our Social media and Entertainment volunteers have assured us that they contacted everyone last month that is participating as a vendor and an entertainer and also people that have registered to have a booth but we just heard from someone that apparently didn’t get the notifications so we are reaching out again just in case others were missed.
We are busy working with the sponsors to make sure everything is still in place moving forward and it is. We would love to hear back from you too to make sure this time that you have received this message and that you have put it on your calendar for Next Father’s Day so that everyone has time to plan accordingly. Also it will be the 20th Anniversary of Amanda’s Lemonade Stand in 2018 so that will make it even more amazing.
The people we have already heard back from that have registered to have a Guinness record stand or are participating have been happy for us to hold that spot for them for next June so please let us know if we haven’t heard from you yet.
Hi, I am Amanda and I am 18 years old. Ever since I was 2 years old I’ve had a lemonade stand on the front lawn to raise money for paediatric cardiac research initially by supporting the Heart and Stroke Foundation and then I decided to add fixing kids heart locally at Sick Kids and globally with Save a Child’s Heart. When my younger brother Joshua took over as CEO at 5 (he had experience running his Cookie Counter beside my lemonade) he stamped it his own and Joshified my Amanda’s Lemonade Stand. After a discussion with baseball all-star Fergie Jenkins Joshua decided to also raise awareness and funds for Organ Transplants by also supporting The David Foster Foundation to help the families, Transplant research through Canadian Blood Services and we encourage everyone to register as a donor with Beadonor.ca
Click here to view a few videos of us since I was 2 years old. So far we have raised over $210,000 to fix kid’s hearts that are broken and if they can’t be fixed, help get them a New one.
But two hundred and ten thousand is just a number, and numbers have to come from somewhere. That seemingly big number started with one. One is the first glass of lemonade I ever sold. One is the first dollar I ever donated to charity and one is YOU, the amount of people it takes to change the world.
WATCH ABOVE: Amanda Belzowski started Amanda’s Lemonade Stand back in 1999. Since that time, she hass raised $210,000 for numerous charities supporting cardiac care for children both here at home and abroad. Now that Amanda is all grown up and attending university, she’s passed the torch to her 10-year-old brother Joshua. Susan Hay sits down with the new CEO to find out where his passion comes from to keep his sister’s dream alive.
It’s the time of year you’ll begin to see fresh lemonade stands popping up in your neighbourhood. However, for Amanda’s Lemonade Stand, it has been in business for the last 19 years.
“We were going on the Heart and Stroke Ride for Heart and coming home we were passing a lemonade stand, and being two years old, I asked my mom if I could have one and she said, ‘Sure,’” said Amanda Belzowski, founder of Amanda’s Lemonade Stand.
Amanda’s Lemonade Stand has raised more than $210,000 to date for numerous charities supporting cardiac care for children, both here at home and abroad.
Now that Amanda is grown up and in university, she has passed the torch to her 10-year-old brother, Joshua Belzowski.
As for why Joshua wanted to take over the stand, he said he wants to prove that the smallest people can have the biggest impact.
“I really wanted to keep the saying that, ‘You’re never too little to make a big difference in the world and no efforts too small to change the world,'” said Joshua.
“I wanted to have other people not look at us and say, ‘Oh, you’re too young.'”
Not only is Amanda Joshua’s older sister, but she acts as a mentor to the young CEO and she is encouraging and teaching him along the way.
Since the long-time lemonade stand grew in popularity, this year it’s changing things up by moving to Downsview Park from their front lawn on June 16.
“We’re going to be raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life,” explained Joshua.
“It’s not just our charity, it’s all charities coming together and making a difference in the world.”
With each passing year, the exuberant duo continue to help change the world one glass lemonade at a time.
