On July 18, 2017, over 50 individuals joined The B Fund at The Street Chestnut Hill for its Kid-Friendly Fun Summer Series event. These kid-centered events take place each Tuesday and feature a variety of fun activities. This week, activities included Zumba from BTone Fitness and card-making and Lemon-AID from The B Fund!
The B Fund loves any opportunity to get kids involved in acts of giving, no matter how small, so when The Street was kind enough to invite us to join their Kid-Friendly Fun series, we decided that this was the perfect way for kids to cool off with some fresh Lemon-AID as they colored their handmade treasures for children in the hospital.
The event engaged over 50 participants of all ages, who submitted 52 cards for critically ill children to help brighten these brave kids’ days and let them know that other children are thinking of them.
Shake Shack was generous enough to donate lemonade for this activity, and although it was complimentary for attendees, supporters were generous enough to donate anyway. The proceeds from this event will help provide support to critically ill children and their families, paying for services such as Be Bags, meal vouchers, and parking passes.
The empathy and enthusiasm from these participants, ranging from ages 2 and up, was truly inspiring. Children attending the event asked a lot of great questions about where the cards were going, and when they finished the cards, many noted that they hoped their card could make another child happy during a difficult time. Several children even asked if they could continue making more cards because they loved the activity so much!
We would like to thank The Street, event participants, and the the adults and children who volunteered their time and talents to help serve lemonade and assist in card-making. Their contributions are truly appreciated!
Did you miss out on the fun? Good news! We will be back at The Street in September! On September 7th, we will host another Lemon-AID Stand at The Street’s acoustic night, and on September 12th, we will participate in another Kid-Friendly Fun event with card-making!
