Top 10 LemonAiD Success Tips
1. Get help; don’t do all the work yourself.
2. Be sure to wear your badge and post the LemonAiD sign.
3. Location! Location! Location! Select a high foot traffic area. Don’t be afraid to ask a
local store if you may place your stand outside their door.
4. Ask for a donation rather than setting a specific price. You will be surprised at how
much money people will give to support your effort to raise money for homeless kids.
5. Make your stand different from the rest. Use brightly colored decorations such as
balloons, streamers and pinwheels.
6. Grab people’s attention – wear a funny hat, dress up your dog, or make additional eye
7. Contact your pastor or church youth group leader to see if you could set up a stand at
8. Sell other things at your lemonade stand like baked goods.
9. Email everyone you know and give them the date, time and location you will be
operating your stand. Encourage them to stop by.
10. Have Fun!!
