“Littlest Bailout” Gives Kids $100 for Their Lemonade Stands
Think back to when you were a kid. When you wanted to make a little extra cash you would probably ask your parents if you could have a lemonade stand, right?
Well, obviously with everything going on with the COVID-19 pandemic this summer we're probably not going to see many kids out there selling their "homemade" lemonade for a couple of bucks.
One lemonade company is doing what it can to bailout the little guy.
According to Business Wire and a press release from Country Time Lemonade, the company has launched The Littlest Bailout. In the press release, Country Time Lemonade explains "With the economic repercussions of COVID-19, the big guys are muscling the little guys out of the way and pushing for bailout funds meant for small businesses. To help the smallest of small businesses, kids’ lemonade stands."
They explain that The Littlest Bailout Relief Fund will "send stimulus checks to kids who had to close their lemonade stands due to COVID-19."
Country Time Lemonade says these stimulus checks will "help kids preserve the values of lemonade stands, honest work and entrepreneurship, while putting a little juice back into the economy."
If your child is missing out on their yearly summer lemonade stand you can help them apply. All you have to do is visit CountryTimeBailout.com. Kids must write an essay about how they would use their stimulus check along with a picture of their lemonade stand sign that they were going to use, but now can't.
Kids 14 and under can apply.
Once you sign up your child has a chance to receive a bailout check of $100.
Andrew Deckert of Country Time Lemonade said added:
Country Time has a history of helping lemonade stands when they are in trouble, like stepping in to pay for permit fees and fines, and this year is no different. Due to social distancing guidelines, lemonade stands aren’t what they used to be, and we want to help kids foster their entrepreneurial spirit.
