SoCal girl sets up annual lemonade stand to help homeless
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. - At age 12, Jaelyn Sager has established her life's work. The Southern California girl has already dedicated half her life raising money to help those without a home.
At the age of six, the preteen, who goes by JJ, said she noticed a homeless man and felt in her heart that people should not live that way.
So she took action. She set up her first curbside lemonade stand and brought in $300 for homeless people in her area.
Since then, when the heat of summer rolls in come August, Jaelyn sets up her stand, selling ice cold lemonade and cookies.
Over the years, she's raised $16,000 for a local homeless charity called We Care of Los Alimitos.
This year, JJ hopes to raise $10,000 through both cookie and lemonade sales, as well as donations.
She's started a GoFundMe page for her cause.
With her heart set on helping others, JJ says she hopes to run her own non-profit when she grows up.
