Making my way through Philadelphia, I couldn’t help but stop at Alex’s Lemonade Foundation. The fine people who work here, raise money for cancer research for children. In 2000, four year old Alexandra Scott overheard that there wasn’t enough money to make sick kids at the hospital, well. Alex decided to have a lemonade stand to raise money. The story of Alex’s Lemonade is a must read for everyone. Please visit www.alexslemonade.org to learn of the great things they do and their upcoming annual fund raiser.
Heading south to Chester PA, The Kindness Bicycle Tour has never heard any more well wishes as I have pedaled along my route. The response is a big lift for me as, some days, it seems that I am continually riding up a hill. Today was one of those days.
Before heading out of Philadelphia, I stopped at Independence Charter School. I heard from 2 different people about the great job everyone is doing at this school and how they would love The Kindness Bus, and they were correct.
