All,

MAGPI, Lower Merion School District and Alex's Lemonade Stand are
pleased to invite you and your students to participate in the 2nd
"Alex's Virtual Lemonade" Stand Project!

*EVENT: *Alex's Virtual Lemonade Stand Project
*DATES: *April 11 - April 26, 2007*
TARGET AGE GROUPS: *K-12 Students
*HOW TO PARTICIPATE: *As an Interactive Videoconference Site (Internet2
connectivity preferred for this option) or Webstream Participant

In celebration of /Global Youth Services Day/, join other schools across
the country as they host lemonade stands to raise money for pediatric
cancer research and participate in other related projects. Schools will
collaborate with each other through a blog, a special "kick off"
videoconference spirit rally and closing project collage videoconference
event.

During this two week project, each school will hold their own lemonade
stands to help raise funds for pediatric cancer. Schools can hold one
big lemonade stand day or a series of lemonade stand events throughout
the two weeks. After each day of sales, schools will report their totals
through the website. Last year we raised more than $3,400. Think we can
double it? Or even triple it?

Schools will also have an opportunity to participate in a variety of
curriculum-related special projects inspired by the idea of kids helping
kids. All projects are tied to  standards. *Special Projects include:
*"Make a Difference" Poetry Contest, **Lemonade Stand Poster Contest,
**"Making a Difference" Song Showcase, **Virtual Pen-Pal Project, **The
Lemoncast - How Can WE make a difference?, and the ****Digital Collage
Project.
**

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity!
