How sweet is this? A new summertime collection provides fun and “juicy” fashion for kids while donating proceeds to a worthy cause. Children’s clothing and accessories brand Hiho Batik has just released an assortment of lemon designs, all with the brand’s signature lightweight and colorful look.
And this “lemonwear” collection offers more than creative and fruity clothes. In fact, 10% of each sale from the collection will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a pediatric cancer charity founded by Alexandra “Alex” Scott. In 2000, the 4-year-old cancer patient wanted to start a lemonade stand to raise money to find a cure for all children with cancer—and Hiho Batik is now a part of that mission.
Since 2000, people from around the world have been moved by Alex’s story and have held their own lemonade stands to raise money for the fight against pediatric cancer. In August 2004, Alex passed away at the age of 8 knowing that she had helped raise over $1 million for other children—and the charity has continued to grow ever since. This summer, Hiho Batik will host their own weekend lemonade stands in their Park Slope store throughout June and July to help raise money for the charitable partner.
Beyond cooling off with a glass of sweet lemonade at Hiho Batik, we recommend shopping the store so you can give back twice. Just about every item in the limited edition collection is adorable, but our favorite is the Nine Lemons tank in Baby Pink. With this charming top, kids might be inspired to host their own charitable lemonade stands on behalf of ALSF. It’s a great way to teach children some valuable lessons in responsibility as well as the importance of giving time and energy to a good cause.
