Updated Information on Our Alex's Lemonade Stand

I want to make a correction to all of the information I posted regarding our 2nd Annual Alex's Lemonade Stand. A few days ago I posted the date of our stand as Saturday September 6, when in fact our stand is on Monday September 6. Thank you to a few careful readers who alerted me to my error!

After writing about what our needs where in regards to the stand, I started to feel worried. Maybe worried isn't the right word, perhaps doubtful is better. I doubted whether or not people still cared, if people still remembered what we went through, if people would feel motivated to help this year, or if those who once followed Brady's story had moved on.

God sent me a sweet reminder only hours after I wrote the other day. I received an email from someone who graciously, yet humbly, offered to cover the $200 in expenses that we will have.

That person touched my heart so deeply. The fact that they read about our need and acted on it reminded me that people do care. There may not be hundreds and hundreds of people still reading about our family at this point, after all, we are living pretty drama-free these days:) But there are people who when asked, are willing to step forward and help us make a difference in the lives of children just like Brady. I am so grateful for that!

We still need help in the following areas:
1. We need volunteers to work at our stand. Shifts will be in 2 hour increments starting with setup from 8am-10am and continuing throughout the day until 8pm.

2. We will be selling lemon baked goods again in addition to our wonderful lemonade! In order to comply with the guidelines of Genesee County Health Department, we need to do our preparation of baked goods differently this year. I'm organizing a team of bakers to work with me on Sunday September 5th from 1-7pm at my church to bake and package all of the items that we will sell. I plan on selling quantities of lemon cookies, lemon bars, and mini loaves of lemon bread. If you are interested in being a part of one of my baking teams, that is another area in which you can help! You do not have to commit the entire day of baking. I will have more of an idea of time slots for Sept 6th as I continue planning.

There you have it! If you are interested in helping in any of the three areas listed above, please email me directly at or leave a comment in the comments section (please provide your name and email address).

  1. Awww Meg, no one has forgotten what Brady and your family has been through. Brady's fight touched my heart so deeply. He's such a brave, strong little guy and you and Matt are the most fabulous parents ever. I'm still in awe of how you do all that you do! I unfortunately don't have the funds to help with the stand monetarily right now but bet your bottom that if I didn't live in Ohio I'd sign up to help bake and to work a shift at the stand! You do have my prayers though for a success beyond imagine Sept. 6th!!!!


We love to read your comments!
