Last week, three brothers, ages 2 to 6, from Stapleton, Colorado, got their lemonade stand shut down by Denver cops after several vendors at a nearby arts festival called the police to complain the kids were undercutting their prices.

The brothers didn’t have the necessary temporary vending permit, so were told that they were violating city policy and needed to shut down their business. The boys were trying to raise money for a nonprofit child-advocacy ministry called Compassion International that supports children in poverty.
This summer, though, will be different, thanks to the fifth-largest food and beverage company in the world with a market cap of $71 billion. They had created aa program called Legal-Ade to help kids and their parents fight legal fines that are associated with their lemonade stands.

The fifth-largest food and beverage company in the world with a market cap of $71 billion said it has created a “Legal-Ade” unit that is on hand to help kids and their parents fight any legal woes or fines associated with their lemonade stands.

“Any child fined for running a lemonade stand without a permit can have his or her parent apply for reimbursement. To apply, simply upload the image of your child’s permit or fine along with a description of what your lemonade stand means to your child, in his or her own words,” the company said in a statement.

Each submission will be reviewed by Country Time Lemonade’s team, and if it complies with the terms, the company will cover the permit fee or fine, up to $300. Additionally, the company will donate up to $500,000 to help kids with their entrepreneurial pursuits next year and beyond.

“Go ahead, kids. Run your lemonade stands. Country Time Legal-Ade is on your side and will protect you. When life hands you outdated laws, make lemonade, and get Legal-Ade,” the company said.
