This may be the sweetest 7 yr old, and future entrepreneur! 7-year-old Quinn Callender came home from school one day and told his mom that his buddy Brayden needed to have expensive surgery… and that he wanted to help. So Quinn constructed a lemonade stand and started selling cups to shoppers outside of a local grocery store.  Brayden Grozdanich, also 7, suffers from cerebral palsy and needed to have this life-changing procedure done. These two cute kids live in Canada but the surgery Brayden needed is only done in New Jersey and costs $20,000!

It occurred to Quinn’s parents that their son might need some help if they were going to raise that much money. So, in addition to the lemonade stand, Quinn’s mom Heather started an online crowdfunding campaign called My Buddy Brayden. They set their goal at $20K, which would cover Brayden’s surgery. But before long, they had raised over $50 THOUSAND!
