Lemonade and cookie sale for American Cancer Society

Erin has been wanting to have a lemonade stand for weeks. I talked to her a few nights ago and told her that she could, but that all of the profits would have to go to a good cause. We talked about several options, and she agreed that the American Cancer Society was the best choice (having known several people with cancer she understood the benefits). I agreed to make three batches of cookies for her to sell, and she did all of the rest of the work.

Sean and two of his friends stood with signs at the end of our street to lure customers.

Snickerdoodles!
Peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies.  These were the biggest hit.
M&M cookies, too.
Sneaking a treat between customers.

After two hours she collected $78.47 for the American Cancer Society.  I made the contribution online this evening.
