In Just Two Hours, 9-Year-Old Boy Makes $6,000 For Running A Lemonade Stand

This story restores our faith in humanity.

Merely 9 years of age, Andrew Emery of South Carolina has recently gained popularity via social media because of his good heart. Apparently, Andrew’s baby brother Dylan is sick with a rare and deadly type of neurological condition and so he wanted to help out with the medical expenses.

Eventually, the boy decided to put up a lemonade stand in Greenwood and sold lemonade and shirts for his baby brother. In just two hours, Andrew was able to raise almost $6,000.
