Prattville sisters' lemonade stand is making a difference

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

It's not unusual to see lemonade stands popping up in neighborhoods in the summer. We ran into one on Trolley Road in north Prattville and this one had a Disney flavor to it.

Sisters Maggie and Mylee Kervin ran the show.

"It was my idea because we wanted to help sick children," said 7-year old Maggie.

Lemonade for sale with the proceeds going to Children's Hospital in Birmingham, but Maggie and Mylee aren't sending money.

"We're spending the money on laminated paper dolls that are germ-free and we're also making costumes as well," said Kim Kervin, mother to Maggie and Mylee.

Children's Hospital is putting on a Frozen party this summer for sick children in honor of Disney's computer-animated comedy Frozen. Brittany Carten is dressed up as the show's Snowqueen and thinks what the Kervin girls are doing is nothing short of wonderful.

"I can't believe they thought to do this for all those children. They're wonderful and sweet the entire time," said Carten.

Mom never thought it'd grow this big. This is the third lemonade stand in the last few weeks at the family home but this is the first with princesses. The neighborhood turnout just keeps getting bigger.

"This has increased the number we've had come along. The first hour we had about 70," said Kim Kervin.

Kim Kervin says her daughters have raised around $400 after three lemonade stands. The goal is $600. The family is already making plans for a fourth lemonade sale.

A cup of lemonade here, a tattoo there along with some cookies. It's not enough to cure cancer, of course, but more than enough to offer a ray of hope at Children's Hospital.
