May 2nd is Lemonade Day!

A big THANK YOU to Myragene Coronado, a DH resident, for sharing this with OurDHStreets:

Encourage our next generation of young entrepreneurs to participate in Lemonade Day. This free, annual community-wide event teaches youth how to start and run their own lemonade business. Organized by Prepared 4 Life, it empowers youth and helps prepare them for life.

Help spread the word that all across Houston, children (with help from their parents, mentors, and friends) will be starting their own businesses (with a little guidance from Prepared 4 Life, a nationwide, not-for-profit organization). Children of all socioeconomic backgrounds, in every neighborhood, will learn how to make money to "spend a little, save a little and give a little."

The goal is to help 50,000 young Houstonians start their own business on May 2. This ongoing annual event has life-changing results. Story after story has shown the immediate and long-term effects of this program for children across Houston and around the U.S.

You can help by sharing this email with your friends, colleagues, and business contacts. Everyone can encourage children to sign up at www.LemonadeDay.org. When signing up, each child will receive a backpack filled with
instructional materials to guide them through the process of developing their lemonade stand.

Then, support the youngsters by purchasing a tasty cup of refreshing lemonade on that very special day--May 2!
