Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where should I set up my stand?
For Anthem LemonAid this year, participants have two options: host a physical lemonade stand or participate virtually and raise money online (or do both!). For participants who choose to host a physical stand, we encourage you to set up your stand in your front yard, at your place of business or any other high traffic area. Feel free to get creative! Our Anthem LemonAid kits will come with all the standard supplies like lemonade mix and cups to help you run a successful stand.
2. How do I fundraise?
We encourage participants to fundraise with the fundraising page link provided at registration leading up to Anthem LemonAid weekend. This link can be shared via email, text, social media, etc. Participants also can collect money at their physical lemonade stands during Anthem LemonAid weekend.
3. How do I turn in my money?
Most fundraising will be collected through participant fundraising pages this year. However, if you do have a check or money order you’d like to mail, please send to the address below.

5. What is the Lemon Challenge?
For the last two years, we have included the online Lemon Challenge to help participants spread the word about Anthem LemonAid and engage their networks in fundraising. Record yourself eating a sour lemon and share on your social media channels. Encourage friends, family and colleagues to donate to your page and then pass the challenge along by nominating/tagging someone to participate.
