Valentine’s Day is a perfect opportunity to remind everyone in your life that you are thinking of them. There is nothing sweeter than icy cold lemonade combined with helping kids with cancer. This Valentine’s Day share your love with all the sweeties in your life by giving a gift that gives back! 

Here are five great gifts to share with your favorite people:

1.    Send a little sweetness to their mailbox.

It’s more important than ever to stay connected with friends and loved ones, both near and far. And what better way to show you care than by surprising someone with a donation to help kids fight cancer in their honor? When you donate to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) in honor of your friends or family, you can write a custom message that will land directly in their inbox (or mailbox). It's a simple process that goes a long way: Click "In Honor" under “Would you like to make your gift in honor or memory of someone?” on the donation form. Decide if your message will be sent via email or mail (an ALSF staff member will write your text in a card and mail it). Draft your special message, finish your donation and know you’ve made the day sweeter for loved ones and for kids with cancer. 

2.    Charm them with jewelry. 

Who doesn’t love a little joy around their wrist? Several ALSF partners have the perfect jewelry for all occasions. And when you shop their special products, you help kids with cancer too! Help your Valentine Squeeze the Day with bracelets from Katie’s Cottage Barn, “Take a Stand” with Mantraband, gift the charming ALSF band from Unselfie. 

3.    Toys with joy.

Kids young and old will delight over this Unicorn Van from Rose and Rex. For each van sold, Rose and Rex will donate $1 to ALSF. And don’t forget to show your lemonade spirit every day with a custom ALSF Popsocket

4.    Sweet treats for every meal. 

Spend your Valentine’s Day enjoying some sweet lemon treats from ALSF partners! Serve some lemonade mimosa’s made with Country Time or Florida’s Natural Lemonade, deck your Valentine’s Day brunch with Nonni’s Biscotti or maybe pick up some takeout from one of the restaurants who support ALSF.  

5.    Make them smile.

While you take advantage of Amazon Prime’s two-day shipping, be sure to shop through AmazonSmile (now available on the mobile app too!). Select ALSF as your charity of choice and Amazon will donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to ALSF.
