It all started when he stopped at a lemonade stand to support young entrepre- neurs set up under a small umbrella in 115-degree heat. After speaking with the two young boys, Christian learned that they were two of eight children, ranging in age from 6 months to 16 years old, and that they took turns running the lemonade stand Mondays-Saturdays to raise money to buy food for their family, the Stantons.
