Our daughter, Ishani Ayona Pal, who is six years old, organized a lemonade and popcorn stand in our front yard in Niagara-on-the-Lake on Saturday, Sept. 3.
She wanted to donate all her proceeds earned from her stand to the Niagara Dog Rescue, the place that helped us find our rescue dog, Spot.
Ishani is in Grade 1 and just started at Crossroads Public School in NOTL last week.
We live in Old Town and that Saturday just happened to be super hot and sunny, a perfect day for some ice cold lemonade and some delicious popcorn to go with it.
She sold more than 40 litres of lemonade and over 60 bags of popcorn.
The generosity and support from our family, friends and neighbours was just overwhelming. Even her young friends helped her out at the stand during the day. It was so sweet.
On Sept. 10, Ishani was invited to Niagara Dog Rescue’s Ride4Paws to the Willoughby Firehall in Niagara Falls from the Husky Travel Centre in NOTL where she handed over a cheque for $905 to help this charitable organization.
