2020 Lemonade Standemonium

To Our Lemonade Standemonium Family:

To limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our community's health while continuing to support and provide the best cancer care in Eastern Ontario, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and Cardel Homes have decided to take our popular fundraising event online in 2020 and raise funds throughout the month of August.

When life serves up lemons, as it has in so many ways this year, we still make lemonade! We hope that you can help us make the best out of these uncertain times and spread some sunshine virtually, rather than in liquid form! Thousands of lives touched by cancer in our community still need your support.

Today in Ottawa, 30,000 people are in treatment for cancer and half of them will experience a disruption in their treatment because of COVID 19. In this most challenging of years for so many people, another 8,000 people in Ottawa will be told they have cancer. Generating financial support and strengthening local cancer care, research and clinical trials have never been more important than it is right now. 

While we won't have stands popping up across the city, virtual lemonade stands are springing up online and raising funds throughout August!

Register and personalize your virtual lemonade stand and kick-start your online fundraising by asking friends and family for their support.

We will continue to communicate with you regularly by email during the coming weeks to keep you up to date. You can also follow us on social media.

We look forward to *clinking* glasses of lemonade with you at your live lemonade in the future!

1. Register Your Team

We understand team stands come together in many different forms. To identify which type of team stand you are please click back to the landing page of the website (www.itakeastand.ca), choose which type of team stand best fits, and begin with the registration process. If you are clear on how to register your team stand then begin by clicking "create a TEAM STAND". Every member of the team must register to get their own welcome kit and fundraising webpage, which is linked to incentive prizing.

2. Start Your Virtual Fundraising

You can get a head start on raising funds as soon as you register! Share your fundraising page on social media and by email, asking people to donate to your virtual lemonade stand. Try this out:

  • Ask your friends and family to buy your virtual lemonade. Sell a cup for $5, a litre for $15 or a barrel for $25. Send out an email or give your loved one a call to make the ask this can be a great addition to your weekly check-ins with family members, friends and neighbours!
  • Join local celebrities such as Alex Mateas of the Ottawa Redbacks and Bell Media on-air personalities during the Lemonade PuckerPic Face-off Challenge on social media. Simply take a picture of your funniest Lemonade Pucker face (sucking a lemon helps) and share it on social media with the hashtag #LemonadePuckerPic and challenge your friends and family to #TakeAStand make a donation and share their own #LemonadePuckerPic.
  • Download a Lemonade Bingo Card for Facebook, Instagram or Twitter fundraising! Share a photo of yourself holding up your bingo card to your page or story, collect donations, and tag your supporters. Prizes will be awarded for top fundraisers check out our Incentive Prizing tab for details.
  • Create a "Lemonade Standemonium Window of Fame"! Download our lemon template here or create your own with craft paper. Have your donors buy a lemon for an amount of their choosing, write their name on the lemon, and tape it to a window in your home. Not only will this recognize the generosity of your supporters, but you’ll add some sunshine to your neighbourhood!
  • Raise a glass of lemonade to those facing cancer in our community by selecting a dedicated day to host your virtual lemonade stand! Ask your friends and family to enjoy a glass of lemonade (or their drink of choice whether it’s milk, hot chocolate or coffee) on your virtual event day! Have them take a photo and post on social media with the hashtags #Lemonade2020 and #itakeastand.
