I have worked with Lemonade Day in two cities, the organization is very helpful at the national and regional levels. It is also a very important and easily facilitated program that can have a true impact in childrens' lives.

Lemonade Day is an amazing initiative that teaches our future leaders the critical business skills that are often neglected in K-12 education. I wholeheartedly believe the program drives home the true spirit of entrepreneurship by teaching our children to save, share, and spend! I was lucky enough to join as a mentor this year and I felt like I made a difference in young people’s lives each day. My experience was fun, empowering, and motiving. There is no doubt I will stay involved with the organization!

I knew a bit about Lemonade Day through the Dallas edition, then when I moved to Austin I got much more involved and led the mentor program for Lemonade Day Austin. Looking forward to 2019 being an even bigger success!

What a really great organization that is offering a totally FREE way to teach our FUTURE LEADERS the skills they will need to be entrepreneurs and business owners of tomorrow! As a parent with limited time, I especially appreciate the well-organized training sessions, workbooks, etc. to help the parents. Communications from the LD team were great as well My daughter accomplished financial goals she didn't think were possible, and felt so special to be recognized for her efforts!

Lemonade Day was one of the greatest ways to bond with my daughter. It helped my daughter with her confidence and skills as a entrepreneur. It give us a great opportunity to interact with our community and build friendships throughout. I believe that because of this opportunity and presenting it in our neighborhood next year more lemonade stands will appear.

Have really enjoyed brining the Lemonade Day program to our city. Kids and adults alike have really loved getting involved. They are great to work with and have been an excellent resource as we have grown our Louisville organization.

This program changes kids’ lives. It provides real-life business experience and teaches a vital life lesson of independence and self-activation. It is also one of the only programs providing experiential learning about business skills to grade school aged youth. America’s free enterprise system is in decline and it is organizations like Lemonade Day that are out there making a difference and reversing that trend.

Since participating in lemonade day Houston my children have learned how to successfully run there own business. Now at the ages 14 & 12 they are more cautious when spending. Learning early on the hard work & dedication that's needed to start and earn money they dont take anything for granted. I am confident that The skills learned through out this program will be with them for a life time.
