Twig Book Shop to host Lemonade Day co-founder and author of IT ALL STARTED WITH A TURTLE, Lisa Holthouse for a story time, meet + greet and book signing featuring NISD students participating in Lemonade Day.
IT ALL STARTED WITH A TURTLE is the story of how Lemonade Day began. Written by Lemonade Day co-founder Lisa Holthouse, it describes through colorful illustrations how a global movement was created from the dream of a little girl to add a turtle to her menagerie of pets. All proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit Lemonade Day.
Northside Independent School District, the State’s fourth largest school district, is in the heart of the most rapidly growing area of Bexar County. Many people say Northside ISD is not just in the heart of northwest San Antonio, but that it is the heart. An estimated 5000 NISD Learning Tree After School Program students are registered and many plan to participate in Lemonade Day San Antonio on May 5, 2013.
Lemonade Day is a strategic 14-step process that walks youth from a dream to a business plan, while teaching them the same principles required to start any big company. Inspiring kids to work their plan and make a profit, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some by giving back to their community. Launched in Houston, Texas in 2007, Lemonade Day has grown from 2,600 kids to an expected 250,000 kids in 50 cities across America and Canada. With the help of partners like Google, Lemonade Day will bring this entrepreneurial experience to 1 million kids in 100 cities across America, sparking entrepreneurship and instilling financial literacy in a way that’s never been done to scale.
