Adria, 7, has a compassionate heart. Earlier this summer, she asked her mother, Kate if she can help sick kids in need. “She has a wonderful understanding that she is much luckier than a lot of kids in that she gets to enjoy life to the fullest,” said Adria’s mom, Kate.
So Adria decided to host a lemonade stand in their hometown of Slatersville, RI, serving up cool beverages and cookies and encouraging online donations through the Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island Kids for Wish Kids® program.
“After doing further research and watching videos of wish recipients, Adria and I felt that this organization truly allowed for kids to get a break…and find happiness with their families,” adds Kate.
Adria raised more than $500 for children with life-threatening illnesses and even visited our offices in person to learn more about the organization to see her cause in action.
