A young girl in Michigan is turning lemons into more than just lemonade — she’s helping local veterans, too. Samantha Stricker has raised more than $2,000 for the VA hospital in her hometown of Saginaw, CBS affiliate WNEM reports.
The 12-year-old, who goes by Sammie, started hosting an annual lemonade stand four years ago after her mom showed her a story about a local soldier who was hurt and hadn’t yet received all his benefits.
The article goes on to state the following:
“At first I was going to keep the money for myself but then I thought about all the people who have so much less than me,” Stricker wrote on her GoFundMe page. “So I decided to take action and make a difference.”
Stricker asked for $1 for each cup of lemonade, WNEM reports, but her customers were a lot more generous.
“A lot of people give me like $20s and $10s for just one cup of lemonade,” she told the station.
