Inspired by the journey of Philadelphia-area hero Alex Scott, the Alex's
Virtual Lemonade Stand Project celebrates the idea that just one kid can
make a difference. Join schools from around the world to raise awareness
and money for pediatric cancer research, all while participating in
standards-based projects that make the process both inspiring and fun. It's
all about kids helping kids -- and we want you to get involved!

As part of this two week program,* each participating school will hold
their own lemonade stands* to help raise funds for pediatric cancer.
Schools can hold one big lemonade stand day or a series of lemonade stand
events throughout the two weeks. Schools will be able to communicate and
interact with one another through the* project blog*, *student-created
videos*, *optional contests*, and special *videoconference events*!

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation <http://www.alexslemonade.org/> is a
national organization with Greater Philadelphia roots. The organization
grew out of the front yard lemonade stand started by Alexandra "Alex"
Scott, a pediatric cancer patient. In 2000, at the age of four, Alex opened
her first annual lemonade stand with high hopes of raising money for
pediatric cancer causes. Every year thereafter, Alex held an annual
lemonade stand in her Pennsylvania front yard and inspired others to donate
money to her cause.



*If you're looking for a unique and meaningful service learning project for
your students, please join us on this incredible journey! *Be a part of our
9th year of the Alex's Virtual Lemonade Stand Project connecting students
around the world through videoconferencing to help raise funds and
awareness to end childhood cancers - one cup at a time...
