So far, Amanda's Lemonade Stand has raised over $193,000!

Joshua and I recently accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in support of Lou Gehrig’s Disease. We think this an absolutely amazing cause that is extremely important to support and raise awareness for! Here is the video of both me and Joshua taking on the challenge!

Where I’m going for the next 2 months, I’m going to be totally technology-free! While this is a fairly hard thing to do sometimes, but its often great to take a break from all the Twitter, Facebook, and distractions of the internet! While I’m gone, I’m leaving Joshua (with my mom’s help) in charge, to handle “any and all things lemonade!” Hopefully, my mom will help him blog a little over the summer, so you can look forward to that! I might be able to answer a few emails forwarded to me by my mom occasionally, but I’m trying to detach myself from all of it for the next 2 months!

Thanks so much, and hope you all have a fantastic summer! If you have any questions, or need to get in touch with me (or Joshua, or my mother), feel free to contact us at any time! Also, make sure to put SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 on your calendars as the 16th ANNUAL LEMONADE STAND to fix kids hearts! Can’t wait to see you all there!

Hey everyone!

I know it’s been quite a while, but let’s just say that with the school year coming to a close, final projects, and exams, it’s been pretty crazy around here! But, I thought I should quickly update you on a few things that have happened recently, before I head off to work at an overnight camp for 2 months this summer!

1) I did a TED Talk. Yes, if you can believe it, I gave a TED Talk in Edmonton, Alberta to a group of amazing high school students! It was such an incredible experience, and a truly amazing honour. The YouTube link is below, if you want to check it out!



Yes, we have finally decided on the date of the next upcoming lemonade stand! It’s our official ‘Sweet 16′ year of the lemonade stand, and we are more excited than ever for:


More details and updates will absolutely be coming as the weeks pass, but I thought I should give you a heads up, so you can mark it on your calendars! We can’t wait to see you all there!

If you have any questions on how to get involved with this year’s lemonade stand, please feel free to CONTACT US with your questions, and we’ll be happy to answer them!


So, I’ll be heading off to work very soon, but I thought that just before I leave for the summer, I should let you know about those two very exciting things!

Thanks, and have a fantastic summer (maybe even with a little volunteering involved!)

 MP John Carmichael comes out once again to support us, and also present us with a fantastic award of honour. Thank you so very much for everything!



Joshua and I with the amazing kangaroo from the incredible Bowmanville Zoo! The kangaroo’s name is Jack, and he was one of the highlights of the day! Have you ever heard of a lemonade stand with a kangaroo? I didn’t think so. (Also, just to clear the air, Jack isn’t biting Joshua… he’s smelling him to see if he has any treats!)
