11-Year-Old Boy Started A Lemonade Stand To Raise Money For Single Moms

Kudos to this kind young man!

While many of us have spent our pandemic days sitting around and longing for a return to our old lives, Cartier Carey has been making the most of these strange and unusual times.

The 11-year-old boy has managed to safely help many people in his hometown of Hampton, Virginia through the use of that most iconic childhood business: the lemonade stand.

With the help of his four younger siblings and some friends, Cartier started selling lemonade to his neighbors around Hampton in July with a goal that was much bigger than scoring some extra coins for his piggy bank. He decided to use his profits to help single mothers who have struggled financially during the coronavirus pandemic.

Cartier and his family have documented the whole project on Instagram, under the account @kids4change757 (those last numbers are Hampton’s area code).

You can see that by the third day, Cartier, who is standing second from the left here, had added candy and snacks to his offerings. That’s diversification 101!
