Lemonade Ripple

"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never the same." Author Unknown

Remember the little girls from our church and their lemonade stand? About a week after this article was in The Repository the paper was contacted by a woman from a local company, ComDoc. She was so personally moved by Danica's story she approached her boss and team about doing a fundraiser for Danica and our family. This past week we had the privilege of attending the planned icecream social and meeting these generous and caring people. Many local businesses donated items for the basket raffle and Handel's donated the icecream. We left the office changed by the love of people we had never met before and now will never forget. It was a ripple from a simple lemonade stand. Check out the article in today's Repository "Your Life" section titled, "A Scoop for Danica."

Read about "The Lemonade Ripple" here and visit Canton's chapter of The Foundation for Community Betterment's booth at Canton's First Friday on September 3rd to find out more and become part of the ripple! Danica will be one of the recipients of their September 25th Rocktoberfest event.
