The saying “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” just played out for two California girls.
Sebastopol, California police are trying to find a lemonade stand thief while also helping the two young victims. They say someone swiped the lemons, ten-dollars in cash and a stuffed toy giraffe from the stand set up by a nine-year-old girl and her friend.
The girls had briefly gone into the house where the stand was set up. When word of the theft got out officers, dispatchers and the police union collected 50-dollars for the girls, the Toyworks toy store gave them a stuffed alligator, a customer kicked in another 20-dollars and Whole Foods donated a crate of lemons.
We bet that lemonade stand will be busy this weekend!
