American Greetings, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Launch National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month With Strawberry Shortcake

American Greetings Properties, the intellectual property and outbound licensing division of American Greetings Corporation, and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to finding cures for kids with cancer, are once again teaming up for a berry special campaign this September in support of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Pop culture icon Strawberry Shortcake is enlisting families across the country to host Strawberry Shortcake Alex’s Lemonade Stands to raise funds and awareness for the cause. The campaign, now in its third year, has raised more than $150,000 in support of research projects dedicated to finding a cure for all kids with cancer.

Families can sign up to host Strawberry Shortcake Alex’s Lemonade Stands during the month of September at http://www.alexslemonade.org/campaign/strawberry-shortcake. Volunteers will be provided with Strawberry Shortcake kits that include vouchers for strawberry lemonade and branded materials to make their lemonade stand “stand” apart. In addition to the funds raised, American Greetings Properties will donate $50 to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for the first 300 stands registered in September, which will go toward research.
