LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. — For six years, 12-year-old Jaelyn Sager has spent her time trying to help the local homeless community by organizing a curbside lemonade stand, raising thousands in the process.
Sagen initially had the idea to open a lemonade stand when she was six years old and saw a homeless man, according to KABC-TV.
“I thought it wasn’t fair like some people have to live that way,” Sagen said.
So she opened JJ’s Lemonade Stand in 2010 and has since raised nearly $16,000 for a local homeless charity called We Care of Los Alimitos.
Even though it’s an uphill battle, Sagen has the support of her community and hopes to make at least $10,000 this year.
She also started a GoFundMe page to raise funds.
You can find her on Facebook at JJ’s Lemonade Stand.
