I’ve written in the past about Lemonade Day and this year’s event is right around the corner. Local 2 Houston did a great segment on Lemonade Day last Thursday that I wanted to share with you: http://www.click2houston.com/video/23237757/index.html. PKF Texas’ President, Kenneth Guidry recently joined the Board of Directors, for Prepared 4 Life, the non-profit that runs Lemonade Day. They do a lot of great work in addition to the Lemonade Day festivities.
To quote them directly:
“Prepared 4 Life focuses on building assets in kids by integrating life skills, character education and entrepreneurship with engaging experiential, fun activities. We help youth take ownership of their lives and rise above their obstacles to become contributing and productive members of our society.
Lemonade Day is a great community wide program where we can all show Houston’s Youth that we care about their future. We can either teach them business or buy lemonade from their business. Lemonade Day is a nationwide event that teaches kids the entrepreneurial skills they need to be successful in the future. Youth learn to set a goals, make a plan, find an investor, sell a product, serve customers, make their own money, save for the future and give back to the community. All in a fun, family oriented community wide event.
Lemonade Day is on Sunday May 2, 2010. Youth ages 3 to 18 can participate and set up their stands at any location they choose.”
