KindCraft's lemonade stand to support Henry's Haul
Time & Location
About The Event
KindCraft's July event will be so much fun!
Our goal is to have at LEAST 100 KindCraft lemonade stands.
They can be at the location of your choice! You can do this as a family OR with your team, church friends, neighbors, etc. The lemonade stand will benefit an amazing nonprofit that does awesome work right here in our community!
Henry's Haul is a local nonprofit that collects, new single pack toy cars (any brand) and donates them to Children's Mercy Hospital. These toy cars are distributed through the Child Life Program at CMH and delivered to all of the hospitals and clinics associated with CMH. Both boys AND girls receive the toy cars that help provide a small distraction whether they are inpatient, outpatient or receiving treatment.
As of January, 2016 Henry's Haul is a 501c3 charity. Your donations are eligible as a deduction on your taxes.
Who is "Henry" from Henry's Haul?
Henry was a sweetheart with a contagious smile, born in November of 2011, who loved to play on his swing set and enjoyed his grandparents' farm. Henry also had Leukemia and in February 2014 he gained his angel wings.
"Henry's Haul" was started in August 2013 during one of Henry's stays at CMH. You see, kids still want to be kids even when they're sick. Most kids can play, even if they're confined to their room or even in bed. A simple car can add that smile to their face and perhaps, even for a minute, make their stay a tad better.

How can you help?
You and your family and/or friends can have a lemonade stand! The money you raise at your stand can then be used to purchase cars for Henry's Haul! So all you have to do is have a lemonade stand which is so fun to do in the summer anyways! You can wear your KindCraft shirts and make posters about Henry's Haul. You have lots of time to prepare so start spreading the word! What is your goal? EVERY amount matters! From 5 cars to 100 cars-every little bit counts :). Grab yourself a pack of Kindness cards and encourage people to do random acts of kindness as well!

What If you not local and would like to participate?
