Alex’s Lemonade Stand was founded by 4 year old Alexandra “Alex” Scott who started having lemonade stands to help find a cure for all children with cancer while battling her own illness. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation continues in her memory and to date has raised millions of dollars funding more than 200 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
“So much of what inspires us is children,” said Stacey Feeley, co-founder of Silikids. “In trying to provide better quality and safer products for kids, we also realize there is so much more that can be done. So let’s do it, let’s raise monies for this amazing organization.”

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation:
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $40 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 200 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
