Cultivating The Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow - Lemonade Day 2009

This is GREAT! And the program needs your support.

Lemonade Day - Austin is a free program which introduces kids to entrepreneurship!

This city-wide event teaches kids the skills they need to be successful in the future. Youth learn to set goals, develop a business plan, establish a budget, seek investors, provide customer service, and give back to our community.

If you have the entrepreneurial spirit in your soul, then you will understand the power that Lemonade Day - Austin will have on kids.

The program started in Houston four years ago, and this year is spreading out to other cities. Since it is the first time in Austin, we all need to help get the word out all over town.

Kids can register today to get started. Participants will receive a backpack full of materials including The Entrepreneur's Workbook which will guide them through this entire process.

Participation is FREE! All that the kids need is the signature of a supportive adult to get started. The best part is the young entrepreneurs get to keep the money you earn from selling your lemonade on May 3rd! (although the program encourages them to give part of the profits to the charity of their choice).

Adults - please support these young entrepreneurs by mentoring, volunteering or sponsoring Lemonade Day. Then get ready to BUY LEMONADE on May 3, 2009!

Your sponsorship of $25, $50, or $100 (or more) can help launch this amazing program in Austin. While the kids do not have to pay to learn these skills, the work book, T-shrirts and other promotions do cost money. Your $25 can make a big impact on the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

PS- Lemonade Day is a "Leadership Project" being brought to you by the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas. If you do not know the Entrepreneurs Foundation, they are AMAZING!

Have A Great Day.
