When a boy from British Columbia found out that his best friend needed to have an expensive surgery, he knew he had do something. But what he wasn’t prepared for was the massive outpouring of support he received from complete strangers.
Seven-year-old Quinn Callander has been BFFs with Brayden Grozdanich since kindergarten. Brayden has cerebral palsy and the invasive procedure he needs costs over $15,000 and is not available in Canada. Luckily, his friend Quinn sprung into action and opened up a lemonade stand in their town of Pitt Meadows, B.C. Together over the weekend, the two boys worked the booth selling glasses of lemonade to generate funds so Brayden’s parents wouldn’t have to take out a loan.
Along with the stand, Quinn’s mom also created an online fundraising campaign which has now garnered almost $50,000 — far surpassing their original goal of $20,000.
So when life hands you lemons, do as Quinn and Brayden would do and make some lemonade.
