WHY CHOOSE US?

WE BELIEVE IN THE FUTURE OF KIDS' LIFE DREAMS AND INNOVATIVE VISIONS!

The Virtual Lemonade Stand, by KidVisionaries LLC, exists becasue we want kids and teens to know that their dreams matter and we don't want money to be the driving force behind the inability to follow a dream. We know that when you support a young person early in life to follow their passion and use their inner gifts and wisdom, they create the strongest foundation for their life that leads to confidence, ability and belief in oneself to achieve anything they set their mind to.

Supporting young people with thier ideas, visions, passions and creativity is ESSENTIAL! Think of it this way, when someone has passion for an idea and natural gift and they are told there is no future with that gift or idea, what are they left with? 

MISSION: OUR MISSION IS TO EMPOWER KID VISIONARIES WITH THE RESOURCES TO ACHIEVE ANY DREAM FOR WHICH THEY ARE PASSIONATE. WE ARE ON A MISSION TO MAKE 1 MILLION KIDS' DREAMS COME TRUE!

IN A NUTSHELL - WHO WE ARE?

In 2005, KidVisionaries LLC Founder Kristi Stoll co-wrote a book for young people titled, Dream it and Create it, How to Find Your Passion and Realize Your Dreams. The book focused on the theory is that EVERYONE has KidVision, which we define as that inner part of all of us that houses our passion, inspiration and life purpose. The goal is to encourage young people to discover their gifts and passions early in life so they can live from that state of inspiration and ingenuity. 

Fast forward to 2020, Kristi's passion and vision to help propel young people with visions, ideas, and dreams have come full circle with the development of KidVisionaries. KidVisionaries.com is fundraising site allowing ages 18 and under to create a fundraising campaign to raise funds to make their dreams a reality! 

The mission of The Virtual Lemonade Stand is to empower Kid Visionaries with the resources to achieve any dream they are passionate about!

"Support of a child’s dream can change his/her life by teaching them to have confidence in their strengths and who they are. This strong foundation opens up a world of possibilities and can change the trajectory of their life." Kristi, Founder KidVisionaries.com.
