One of the “silver linings” of the terrible events in Orlando a few weeks ago has been the amazing outpouring of support for those impacted by the tragedy. A group of great kids right here in Eastern Iowa are doing their part to help as well.
Brother and sister Connor and Fiona Spencer got some friends together and set up a lemonade and treat stand near their home in Mount Vernon to raise money for the One Orlando fund. When people began to drop by and found out what the stand was for, they started to give a lot more than the kids were asking for the goodies. Some gave as much as $50 for a cookie and glass of lemonade! So far, the friends have raised about $600! Pretty inspiring, isn’t it?
