2021 In Review: Thank You For Helping Us Give Back

As the end of the year approaches, it gives us all an opportunity to step back and reflect on what the last year meant. While there were many big moments for us here at Little Sleepies, one of the accomplishments we’re most proud of is the impact we’ve been able to make on the lives of others.

Why We Give Back

Giving back is part of our mission and something we genuinely stand behind as a company. That’s why with every single purchase, we donate to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a partner we cherish because of the meaningful work they do to fund childhood cancer research.

About Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation

ALSF’s mission is to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. In our interview with co-Executive Director Liz Scott, you can learn more about Alex’s story and how she founded the non-profit with a lemonade stand in her front yard back in 2000. Since then, ALSF has funded more than 1,000 cutting-edge research projects at nearly 150 institutions.

Our Impact 

The difference we’ve made in the lives of children with cancer and their families isn’t something we could do alone. You, our community and customers, have made it possible.

Thanks to you, in 2021 alone, we’ve funded:
  • 1,200 hours of childhood cancer research, allowing ALSF to fund impactful research at institutions across the country, taking steps to find safer treatments and cures.
  • Helped 81 childhood cancer families throughout North America with resources such as providing travel to innovative treatments and clinical trials far from their home hospitals
Since the beginning of our partnership, we’ve been able to fund a total of 2,229 hours of childhood cancer research.

    How You Can Help

    ALSF is an incredible organization, and there are so many ways that individuals and families can help. If you’d like to look into ways to donate, you can learn more about ways to give on their website. But financial contributions aren’t the only way to support. From hosting a lemonade stand to participating in the Million Mile and volunteering at a special event, making an impact with ALSF is fun and something the whole family can participate in together. This time of year can be difficult for families experiencing a cancer diagnosis. Sometimes the best way to support is to check in and show up in their lives.

    We’re so grateful to have such a strong community that has allowed us to make an impact with an incredible organization, and we can’t wait to see what’s possible for us in 2022.

      Thank you for choosing to donate to ALSF. We lost our son to childhood cancer after a 7 year battle and without research funding from ALSF and other childhood cancer foundations he probably wouldn’t have survived that long. We love our Little Sleepies and you have a forever customer in us.

      Thank you so much for continuing to help families affected by childhood cancer. This is near and dear to our hearts as our daughter Sawyer passed away due to complications from her chemo even tho she was in remission. She loved little sleepies and I continue to purchase for our son and ourselves. Strength for Sawyer 🎗🦄💕🌈
