Three-year-old Soha Fouad wants to help the children and families of Fort McMurray who have been affected by the wildfires

Three-year-old Soha Fouad wanted to help the children and families of Fort McMurray who have been affected by the wildfires because she thinks they would do the same for her.

The youngster decided to hold a lemonade stand on Wednesday, May 11 to raise funds that she will donate to the Red Cross.

“If I lost my stuff they would help me,” she said.

After only a couple of hours of selling juice, Fouad raised $507.

The success of the sale got wind to organizers with the Walk with your Doc event happening tonight, (Thursday, May 12) at Bob Dailey Stadium. Fouad has been asked to set up shop at the event to continue selling lemonade for donations that will go to Red Cross.

All funds donated to the Red Cross are matched by the Federal Government.

Visit Fouad for some lemonade tonight between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at Bob Dailey Stadium.
