ALDI is partnering with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to fight childhood cancer.
From July 10 - 14, shoppers are able to make an in-store donation to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and the goal of reaching $1 million. This fundraising effort is part of the ALDI “Pay Your Quarter Forward” initiative to support nonprofit organizations with a focus on health and wellness.
Donations will also be accepted through this site, and ALDI will match all donations up to $250,000.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation began as a front yard lemonade stand for four-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who was fighting cancer and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. When she passed away at the age of eight, she had reached her goal to raise $1 million.
Today, the Foundation is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and has raised more than $150 million, funding nearly 1,000 research projects and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer.
ALDI admires Alex’s enthusiasm and determination to help others facing pediatric cancer and to ultimately find a cure. In addition to making a monetary donation in-store or online, ALDI is encouraging supporters to host their own lemonade stand to align with Alex’s vision and donate the proceeds to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
