BOISE, Idaho — 9-year-old Ben Miller of Boise might be a kid, but over the past few years, this third-grader has raised about $2,000 dollars for the Idaho Humane Society (IHS). How did he do it? Selling lemonade!
This week, Ben walked into IHS with a very special delivery. A large plastic bag full of cash, the proceeds from his most recent lemonade stand.
“We did a lemonade stand last weekend and we raised $1,150 dollars,” said Ben beaming with pride. “I wanted to donate money and give the animals supplies and food so they can be happy. I started two years back and the first time I donated about $200 dollars, and the second time I donated about $600, and this time about $1,150,” Ben said. “I usually sell lemonade, lavender lemonade, and cookies and dog treats.”
