A seven-year-old Canadian boy from Maple Ridge has raised $24,000 for his friend’s expensive surgery thanks to a homemade lemonade stand and social media.
After learning that his friend needed expensive surgery in the U.S., Quinn Callander set up a lemonade stand and, with his parents’ help advertising on social media, the donations have been pouring in.
On Sunday, the community was out in full force, including the fire department with the boys wearing shirts that read, “When Life Hands You Lemons”.
Since the above CBC article was posted on Saturday, another $20,000 has been donated for a total of $48,000.
