The Hundred

When we first settled on a goal of $10,000 for this year's Lemonade Stand, I have to admit I thought we were crazy.

Lily, of course, thought $10,000 was not nearly enough. She is always committed to raising a million-zillion-trillion dollars, because Lily is an eternal optimist and if anyone will help find a cure, it is that little spitfire.

Now that we are in the midst of Lemonade season, $10,000 seems extremely possible--because well, we have all of you kind, generous and genius individuals ready to join what I am calling: 
The Hundred

You see, $10,000 is quite a lot of money for one person. But, for The Hundred, it is a piece of cake.

Here's how it works:

  • If 100 of our friends commit to raising 100 or more, we will reach (and maybe surpass) our $10,000. 

  • If 100 of our friends ask 10 of their friends to donate $10 or more, we will reach (and surpass!) our $10,000 goal. 
That's it--100 of our friends ask around for $10---and voila: $10,000 to help cure childhood cancer. $10,000--an amazing sum of money--which could be the last $10,000 needed to find a cure. You never know. . .Lily, my eternal optimist taught me that!

To join The Hundred, just get rolling. Email your friends!Donate online! Spread the word! Share the hope.
