Applebees + Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation


Did you know the leading cause of death by disease in children under nineteen is, cancer? Insane right? This fact baffles me and gets me so upset, especially as a mom of three.  My kids health is so important to me and I am so thankful to have been blessed with healthy children. Not everyone is as lucky though and it breaks my heart to think of moms and kids going through this awful disease. When we heard of Applebee's Neighnorhood Grill + Bar restaurants teaming up with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to take a stand against childhood cancer we knew we had to take a (very, very) small part in helping raise awareness. Please watch this video full of childhood caner facts and how they are helping. The facts are showing and break my mom heart.



Now until August, 12th more than 1,050 participating restaurants are aiming to raise $1million to help fund cutting-edge medical research and family support programs. Since the foundation started in 2005, Applebee's restaurants have partnered with ALSF to raise more than $8.2 million to help keep Alex Scott's mission alive of finding cures for all childhood cancers. 


You too can support in raising funds for the Foundation in a variety of ways, including: 
- Purchasing lemon-shaped pin up-cards in $1 and $5 increments like we did! If you donate $5 you will receive a thank you card entitling you to a free lemonade or free kid's meal on your next visit or $5 off $25 ar Applebee's restaurants. 
- Purchasing a Lemonade Quencher or other frozen flavored Lemonade refreshments to have a portion of the proceeds donated.
- Participating in loval events such as lemonade stands, gold tournaments, donation nights and more. 

Please visit Applebees.com to learn more, donate directly or find a local restaurant near you.

We were lucky enough to partner with Applebees on this post, all opinions expressed are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make out blog possible.
