8 Year Old Turns Lemons Into Lemonade

We can all probably learn something from an unselfish, energetic 8-year-old boy living in Florida.

He's running his own cupcake and lemonade stand, but he's not doing it for himself.

Here's Ashley Porter.

Perhaps the most enthusiastic...

Lemonade salesman...

"It's very good!"

Is an 8-year-old who...

"This lemonade is homemade!"

Gets excited about the recipe...

"We blended the lemons."

Celebrates every sale...

"I'm awesome."

And is more than willing to try the finished product.

But for Harrison Godwin, selling involves caring.

"Alex, she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma."

Alexandra Scott was a little girl whose cancer fight helped create Alex's lemonade stand, a national foundation.

Harrison never knew her...

"I'm filling a lot of glasses today."

But he wanted to help.

"Which cupcake do you want? There's lemon meringue, chocolate and there's strawberry."

All the money...

"There you go sweetie."

Goes to...

Pediatric cancer research.

"Somebody on the computer donated, like, $500 and I went skyrocketing past my goal. It just blew it open."

For Harrison, that's just icing on the cupcake.

"I hope it can help kids by scientists finding a cure...or what I was thinking, when I grow up, I was going to invent these little nanobots that can swallow them and then they can fight cancer for you with their little mini lasers and stuff.

And they have this big, big thing that sucks away mucus."

So if you hear a kid ask...

"Would you like some cupcakes or lemonade?"

There might be an even sweeter goal behind it.

"Thank you!"

This is Harrison's second year working with Alex's Lemonade Stand.
