Lemonade Day program expands in Hendricks County

(Continued)

Backpacks are also available at the Avon-Washington Township Public Library, Brownsburg Public Library, Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library, and at guest services at Metropolis Mall in Plainfield.

Metropolis will also be hosting stands on Lemonade Day.

“We have a good number of locations where kids can register in Hendricks County,” Marsh said.

In 2012, the Greater Indianapolis Lemonade Day registered 15,000 children and sold 1,534,459 cups of lemonade. The total gross revenue was $2,409,480 and $800,863 of that went to charity.

Marsh said the Lemonade Day program has added a new component this year to help children find non-profits to partner with.

“Many kids don’t know who they want to share their profits with,” she said. “So we’re hosting a workshop and inviting local non-profits to set up booth space. Kids will be able to walk around and learn about the different non-profits. This way they can make an informed decision on where to donate their profits.”

The workshop is 6 p.m. April 9 at the Jewish Community Center in Indianapolis.

“They have a huge space,” Marsh said. “Any non-profit can come and set up a booth. There is no RSVP required.”

Also new this year is a “seed money” fund for participants. As any entrepreneur knows, it takes money to start a business. She said most children get their funds from parents, family, or friends.

“Even if they’re going to use a table from home, they’ll need to purchase the lemonade from the store to sell,” she said. “The kids just need to submit a two-minute video — nothing too elaborate a phone video will do — to tell us how they will use the money. It’s a great lesson for the kids. Even if they don’t go on to start their own business as adults. They will one day have to ‘pitch’ something for any job.”
