Lemonade for Eli: {Sunday Snapshot}

Recently friends of ours received approval from China to adopt a little boy they plan on naming Eli.

With travel looking sooner than what they had originally planned, the family is brainstorming ideas of ways to have the funds they need to bring Eli home. So, with that being said....Zoe heard Paul & I discussing their situation. She came up with the idea of having a lemonade stand with all of the proceeds going to Eli's soon-to-be forever family to help get him home. Needless to say, her idea was very successful.

Zoe held her Lemonade for Eli stand in front of the funeral home on Thursday of this past week. (She talked about having it in front of our house, but her dad explained to her that she wouldn't have many buyers since our road is not busy. Instead, he talked her into having it in front of the funeral home which sits on a major highway.) Zoe made all of the signs & was quite the seller - waving to all the cars driving past encouraging them to stop.

The grand total for 2 1/2 hours of work - $72.50!

(When our friends get their adoption site up & running, I will pass it along!)

Ni Hao Y'all
