Remember being a kid and operating your own Lemonade stand? It was a right of passage for us, kids turning into entrepreneurs. Now though, people are crushing that tradition and stopping kids from making an honest quarter. Nowadays you need to obtain a permit, what kind of garbage is that?!
Well, Country Time lemonade has offered to pay the fines of any children penalized for operating a lemonade stand without a permit.
The company will cover fines or fees up to $300 per child and has allocated $60,000 for such fines and fees. According to their “Legal-ade” site, the child has to be 14 or younger and running a lemonade stand.
What a genius PR move!
Kids across the country are getting busted for operating lemonade stands without a permit. We're taking the lead to #SaveLemonadeStands by paying for kids' fines + permits this year. For every RT this gets we’ll donate $1 (up to $500,000) to help kids next year + beyond.— CountryTime (@CountryTime) June 7, 2018
