Detroit boy will donate money from lemonade stand to the city8/6/2012
When 9-year-old Joshua Smith closed his lemonade stand on Saturday, he'd raised almost $3,500. And the Detroit boy wasn't just cramming bills into his piggy bank: He raised the money for the city of Detroit. "I heard the city was in crisis because the city is broke and I was really upset," Smith said. Smith sold lemonade and popcorn in the hopes that he could make enough money to mow the grass in the park and fix a few broken water fountains. (A big-hearted volunteer chipped in and took care of that problem). Smith didn't just improve his city's future, he also helped his own -- the Rosa Parks Scholarship Foundation awarded him $2,000 for college. Smith is the youngest recipient. [Source]
