EBAY Auction for CCI

HI everyone!! There's a really cool 9 year old boy that is helping out CCI, with 100% of the proceeds going to CCI...he's 9 and he's already raised $20,000...that's a lot of dog food!! &userid=klemonade33

"A young child took it upon himself to ask for a lemonade stand for his birthday so he could help out a charity. Since he like animals, he heard about Canine Companions for Independence and decided to check the place out. He visited the Northeast Region office of Canine Companions for Independence and as he walked in, he saw pictures on the wall with the smiles on the kids and adults faces who were in wheelchairs sitting next to dogs that helped them. He decided that this was the charity for him. After setting an ambitious goal of $20,000 for someone so young, he started out that day, keeping a journal of all he raised. He has taken his stand to pet stores and parades and talked to clubs and organizations with his lemonade stand giving out bookmarks and answering questions as much as he can. He has never kept a single penny, he has given all he has received to help out this charity he so believes in. Last year, besides his now famous lemonade stand,(coincidentally purchased on E-bay) he decided to have a charity auction and get items from "people who are famous" to help him out. He dictated letters explaining about his charity and the auction. 100% was sent directly to the non profit organization Canine Companions for Independence working with E-bays charity site. To date, he has recently reached his goal and helped raise just over $20,000. He has decided to try and raise another $10,000 by continuing to do his lemonade stand, and also thought of getting dog collars and having celebrities sign them and auction those as well, again, 100% going to Canine Companions for Independence. He hopes to reach his goal, but his ultimate goal is to make more people aware of Canine Companions for Independence."
