Before Brady Campbell recently lost his dad to colon cancer, the Colorado six-year-old promised his father he would keep an eye on his mom after his death. They came up with the idea for the boy to have a lemonade stand to raise money to take his mom on “a date” and he recently set up shop outside their Denver home to fulfill their deal.
Brady charged 25-cents a cup or “best offer” for the lemonade and he did pretty well selling to family and friends. But business really picked up after a visit from local police officer, who put out a call on his radio and firetrucks and police cars started stopping by. He raised $244 selling lemonade and plans to use it to take his mom, Amanda, on a date and do something to honor his dad, according to the family.
They’ve set up a GoFundMe page as a “virtual lemonade stand” to continue raising money in honor of Brady’s father, Brandon. Some of those donations will be used for “adventures and dates” for the boy and his mom and the rest will go to the Palliative Care Team and Cancer Center at the University of Colorado Anschutz.
