Three girls whose lemonade stand was shut down by the police in Midway, Georgia, for not having a business license and food permit, were offered a prime location to reopen in the tourist-rich state park of Jekyll Island.
Jekyll Island officials contacted the young teens and invited them to sell their lemonade at Summer Waves Water Park. They even built the girls a new lemonade stand.
It was a sweet deal for the girls, but also a great public relations move for the park authorities, who learned the girls were only trying to earn money so they could attend a competing park.
Since then, “there has been an outpouring of support for the girls,” reports WSAV-TV.
“As a way to give back, 10 percent of the girls’ proceeds will go to their hometown animal shelter.”
