Last year I posted about Because I am a Girl by Plan Canada, an organization on a mission to spread a positive message about the importance of educating our girls of tomorrow, giving them a future of hope and wonder in the developing world. Because I am a girl was travelling across Canada interviewing young women across the country for a special documentary.

Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl movement shows how investing in girls is key to eliminating poverty and creating a better world for tomorrow, today. It's a global initiative to raise awareness and donations to help ensure a brighter, safer future for girls in the developing world.

This year, Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl is on another mission, to raise not only awareness but also funds for the foundation in a fun way.

Summer is just around the corner and with it comes some of our favourite outdoor activities. Long walks with loved ones, stopping to smell the flowers and a long time Canadian tradition - the lemonade stand.

Lemonade stands are a great way for kids of all ages to have fun while they learn about money and being entrepreneurial. Lemonade stands are also a great way to help teach kids about the importance of giving to others and help them become more socially conscious.

Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl invites you to participate in making that difference and fundraising using their Pink LemonAid Stand kit!  Pink LemonAid is an easy way to make small actions here in Canada drive big change for girls in developing countries.


It's super easy to get started with your own Pink LemonAid stand and raise some funds at your next outdoor summer event:

- Visit the Because I am a Girl website at www.becauseiamagirl.ca and download the Pink LemonAid digital materials or request your own Pink LemonAid stand kit via the mail in the fundraising section.

 

-Choose your fundraising goal and track it on  the Because I am a Girl website. Family and friends can also visit your online donations page to make a contribution!
- Choose a location. Lemonade stands are perfect additions to yard sales, school fundraisers or community events! Maybe have a Pink LemonAid stand set up for your next friendly neighbourhood BBQ and kick off the summer raising funds for a great cause!
-Invite family and friends to come out and support your cause. The more the merrier!

*This is not me and K but isn't the set up lovely!*

We will be having a family garage sale in a couple of weeks, although we would love to donate all our proceeds, with our budget we can't however having our daughter help out and maybe host a Pink LemonAid stand on the side we can help in our own little way :) We have ordered our kit by mail!

We hope you consider adding a Pink LemonAid stand to your summer events too!
Visit www.becauseiamagirl.ca for more info and how to get your Pink LemonAid Stand Kit!
