Sunkist’s ‘Take A Stand’ Program
Gets Kids Involved In Charity Work

It doesn’t happen often but every once in awhile everything just clicks. So it goes with Sunkist’s “Take a Stand” promotion, now its fifth summer.
With this promotion Sunkist gives away free lemonade stands to children ages 7 -12 who pledge to raise money for their favorite charity.
It ties together youth, entrepreneurship, service, Americana and, yes, even selling more lemons.
Billy Dean, the Grammy Award-winning country artist, is the national spokesperson for “Take a Stand” and he put together a video last season regarding what this was all about:
Saturday, June 21, 2008, is official “Take a Stand Day” and that is the day Sunkist urges children to kick off their lemonade stand season.
It is not too late to participate, so if you have children between 7 and 12 who are looking for a chance to do some good in the world, have them get involved with the Take a Stand program right here.
