Cups for a Cause BCS began in 2019 as a way for our daughter to learn and practice new social skills by operating a lemonade stand, while raising awareness for children with disabilities in our community. Jolie Kate is a 5-year-old with intractable epilepsy (meaning uncontrolled epilepsy) and autism. By selling lemonade, Jolie and her 3-year-old brother Jensen, are able to promote inclusion by raising awareness, one cup at a time. All proceeds from each lemonade stand are donated directly to a local family of a child with disabilities in need of support. In her first year of operating, Jolie was able to donate over $700 to a young classmate in need of funds to train his autism therapy dog, winning 3 awards for her efforts!If you would like to stay updated on Jolie’s journey with epilepsy, including her upcoming surgery on October 16, 2020, join her group by clicking here.
