A 6-year old donates half his lemonade profits to the ACLU.
Today on FACEBOOK I saw my long-time friend Gary Gray’s story — of how his almost-year-old son JOSH decided to have a Lemonade Stand today… and chose to give half of his profits to the ACLU. I was so moved I immediately promised to send $20. — and then called Gary to tell him. Gary said his son’s stand had cars lining up to buy a cup — and donate half to a good cause. Only one woman questioned it, he reported. Vin was impressed by the act of philanthropy — and social activism. He pledged to match my gift… and I put a check in the mail tonight. I’d wanted to donate to the ACLU anyway, and this took it to a whole other level. I’m inspired by Josh, who already cares.
