I hope that you are enjoying this week’s series featuring women who I personally admire and think that their inner beauty is simply stunning.
My next beauty is from my own area. A young lady named Alexandra Scott.
She is my featured modern-day beauty. Alexandra made lemonade and sold cups of the stuff in her front yard at her own homemade stand. What’s so special about that? sound pretty ordinary? Lots of kids do that to raise money for stuff they want right?
There is a well-known saying, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade”. Most times that is easier said than done. I don’t know if Alexandra had this quote in mind when she decided to make her stand and sell lemonade to help kids. Kids like her. Kids who suffer from childhood Cancers.
Know her now? Ah… I see the lightbulbs turning on. I don’t know of anyone (at least here in the U.S.) who has not heard of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Alex’s story is extraordinary. For such a young person to “get it” early on and realize that she wanted to help. Help kids, doctors, researchers and anyone else involved to help find a cure for childhood Cancers. In her short life, she touched so many and raised about one million dollars toward research!
Her legacy lives on thanks to her family. Now many people all across the country host their own lemonade stands to continue her effort to help raise funding and awareness about childhood Cancers. To find out how you can get involved and be part of her legacy and mission, visit the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
So that is why Alexandra Scott is today’s inner beauty feature. Her qualities are: selflessness, charity, courage, innocence, kindness and love.
