When 3-year-old Ava Lewis decided to start a lemonade stand this summer, the Durham, NC, tot knew just where her profits would go.
“I want to help babies,” Ava told her mom, Maggie, when the two began plotting the sweet endeavor earlier this summer.
They decided to put the money from their stand toward bottles and diapers for local babies in need. Now the charitable business is so successful, Ava has had to scale up from just selling cups.
“One lady jumped out the car and said, ‘I wanna get some gallons,’ ” Maggie tells ABC11.
Ava, her mom and grandmother tested recipes and built the stand, which they parked outside the hair salon Maggie has owned for 11 years. Thirsty fans started lining up once they heard where the money was going.
