The US of late has seen a peculiar problem of lawkeepers taking on children putting up lemonade stand and shutting their stalls down, much to the dismay of many. But for the little souls, such strong measures haven't succeeded in discouraging them in their noble initiative.
In the above video, a little girl named Lila Pratt is seen raising money through a lemonade stand in Chico, California, USA, and using the funds to buy supplies that she plans to give to the victims and fire crews of the devastating Carr fire in California's Redding that has killed seven so far. The state's congress candidate Audrey Denny shared Lila's images on her Facebook page last month and appealed to people to visit her stall and help her in whatever ways they can in her noble cause. The video shows Lila thanking customers for helping her out and her family has already used a part of the money raised from the business to buy nearly 50 backpacks that will be donated to school children who were displaced by the fire.
"Lila has so far purchased and donated items such as blankets, pillows, water bottles, Gatorade, diapers, baby wipes, children's snacks, toiletries, feminine hygiene products, and games/activities for children," Lila's mother Kirrin Pratt told Storyful. As on Saturday, August 4, the little has raised $2,105 (INR 1,44,329) with her lemonade stand.
