American Humane’s “Be Kind to Animals Week” may have begun just yesterday, but the hard work to help make this year’s campaign a success has been going strong for a long time.
Part of American Humane’s efforts has been the “Lemonade for Shelter Aid” contest. The contest encourages children to set up lemonade stands in their neighborhood and donate all of the money raised to their local animal shelter or rescue group. Those participating can also accept non-monetary donations, such as used or new blankets, newspapers, and general pet products.
The contest began April 15th, welcoming children between the ages of 6 and 14. Simply download the entry form on the website, complete it, and email it with a picture of your child or children working at the lemonade stand to: Lemonade@AmericanHumane.org.
One grand-prize winner will be picked at random to receive three Nintendo DS Lite game systems. All entries must be in by May 10th.
