Here are some tips to help you organize your Pink LemonAid stand in 7 easy steps!
STEP 1 - Decide on a day, time and place to hold your event
Get permission from your parent, teacher or guardian first. Tell them why you want to have a Pink LemonAid Stand. Be sure to ask them for help in selecting a good location.
STEP 2 - Set your fundraising goal
Set a goal of $25, $50, $100, $1000. Create a fundraising web page for your friends and family who can't make it your Pink LemonAid stand. They'll be able to donate online to support your efforts.
STEP 3 - Download our kit materials
Our kit materials include stickers, a donation jar wrap, handouts and a flyer to use for promoting your stand. Enter your Pink LemonAid stand details on the flyer – date, time, location, and your fundraising goal. Make as many copies as needed to hand out at school, to neighbours, friends, family or to your sports team. Be sure to promote your stand in the weeks leading up to your event date. Download now!
Be eco-friendly too. Email your friends and family or promote it on Facebook or Twitter.
STEP 4 - Buy lemonade and cups
Buy some frozen pink (or yellow) lemonade and disposable cups (biodegradable if available) the day before your event. (You can always ask a family member or friend to donate the cups or lemonade too). Make sure to buy enough lemonade and cups to accommodate the crowd!
STEP 5 - Download our pledge form
Download our pledge form to record any donations you recieve that are $25.00 and over. These people will receive a tax receipt from us for their donation. Send your completed pledge form in when you send us the money you've raised.
STEP 6 - Set up your stand and sell lemonade
Set up your stand and use the Pink LemonAid kit items. Get ready to serve! You're on your way to changing the world!
STEP 7 - Send us your donations
Count up all the money you raised. Send us ONE cheque for the total amount of donations to:
Attention: Pink LemonAid
95 St. Clair Avenue West, Suite 1001
Please write PINK LEMONAID on the cheque memo. DO NOT send cash.
