Lemon-Aid is a Greensboro-wide effort to raise funds to end Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Kids all over town will sell lemonade May 22-23; proceeds will go to Parent Project MD. We hope you will help us.
One Kid Helping One Kid
Lemon-Aid started with one child wanting to help one child in Greensboro, NC.
Seven-year-old Jack Freedman heard about Matthew Greiner, a little boy who had “trouble with his muscles.” Jack heard that the grown-ups wanted to raise money “so Matthew’s doctors could figure out how to help Matthew.”
Jack wanted to help too. He only knew one way to make money; with his brother, he made some lemonade and a sign. When neighbors stopped to buy lemonade, he told them he was trying to help Matthew. When neighbors stopped to buy lemonade, he told them he was trying to help Matthew.
He poured and spilled and collected nickels, dimes, quarters and some dollar bills. A few sticky hours later, Jack sent a letter and $24.26 to a boy he’d never met
Matthew’s parents wrote back right away, and thanked him. Jack thought other kids would want to help too, and he told his mom and dad. Lemon-Aid was born.
