This fundraiser warms my heart in more ways than one! Who would have thought that a little girl, born too early, would be giving back to a preemie charity a few short years later. I'll never forget the first phone call I received from AniYiah's mom when they were planning the lemonade stand. She talked about wanting to teach her daughter about community, prematurity, charity, hard work, and giving back. This mother was so inspiring to me, someone who reminded me about things I will teach my daughters one day soon. She inspired me with her idea about the lemonade stand! What a creative, simple, and fun way to fundraise. A wonderful introduction to charity for a little girl just beginning to learn what that means! We thank you so much AniYiah!!!! From the bottom of our hearts. :)
