Frisco Kids Sell Lemonade For Children’s Charity

FRISCO (CBSDFW.COM) – Andrew Birkenstock yelled, “Ice cold lemonade! Ice cold lemonade!” The 6-year-old’s cry lured customers to his stand in Frisco’s Newman Village neighborhood.

“Would you like to buy some lemonade, some cookies or some cupcakes?” asked Connor Kirkpatrick, Birkenstock’s 6-year-old business partner. More than a dozen neighborhood children stood behind tables pouring cups of lemonade and serving baked goods at their community lemonade stand.

“I think we’re actually doing pretty well,” said 6-year-old Davis Noe, holding a large jug full of cash and coins. The profits will not go to a piggy bank, but rather to help out other kids. “Basically, we’re raising money to buy toys for sick people, and then we’re going to send it to the hospital for them to play with,” Noe explained.

The chosen charity is Change for Children’s, which helps entertain patients at Children’s Medical Center. They provide birthday parties, clowns and animals for those kids staying at the hospital.

“We know how it feels,” said 8-year-old Carly Henderson. Like all kids, they have suffered through stomachaches and sore throats. They can relate to being sick. And even though they do not understand the feeling of cancer, they know that any sickness is not fun. “You can’t do much things that regular kids can,” said Henderson. “You miss a lot of things.”

“Like playing – playing football and soccer,” added Birkenstock.

With sweet faces and sweet products, this group of Frisco kids are learning what it is like to make a difference in the world.

    not to burst anyone’s bubble, but I hope the kids’ parents have permits to sell lemonade and pay taxes.

      It probably depends on where they are selling the lemonade. Some cities might require permits and others might not.

        Also, we don’t know what steps they went to. It sounds like it was very organized, and so they very well could have went through the proper steps.

        Proper steps?! Will you people listen to yourselves?! It’s OUTRAGEOUS that CHILDREN having fun selling lemonade for any reason, charity or not, should pay for an EFFING PERMIT! Bow, SLAVES, to your master – a bloated, overreaching intrusive government on every level – federal, state, and local. Tote that government bale!

    You people (who are worried about 6 year olds paying taxes on charity) are what is wrong with America. Go in your houses and stay there until you have a better attitude.
