Miss Minnesota Princess, Chloe Russo works to raise money for pediatric cancer with....a lemonade stand!


Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation shares the vision of founder, Alex Scott - to find a cure for kids with cancer. When Alex was four, she was diagnosed with cancer. On her birthday, she decided she wanted to set up a lemonade stand to raise money she could "give to the doctors to find a cure for cancer." That day, Alex raised $2000 and thus the foundation was started.

Miss Minnesota princess, Chloe Russo, also aspires to make a difference and was inspired to follow in Alex's steps. Continuing the lemonade stand tradition of the foundation, a few months ago, Chloe set up a lemonade stand in her front yard and aimed to raise money, making a difference, one cup full at a time.

Chloe set up a website and even sent out invitation to family and friends with this message below:

Ewing, Alex's Lemonade StanPlease help me raise money for Pediatric Cancer. I have always wanted to sell lemonade--my mom and I read about a little girl named Alex who had cancer at 4 years old and decided to have a lemonade stand which has raised over $1 million dollars for kids with cancer. I hope to also raise money because It's sad that kids with cancer cannot play outside because they are sick. Please come buy some lemonade at my stand so that one day these kids can play again!

Thank you for helping!

Hugs,

Chloe

Chloe's goal for the day was $1000. But, in true NAM fashion - she went above and beyond her goal, raising $1262...and even made local headlines. Who knew making a difference could be so fun and easy! Way to go Chloe!
