Our Partnership with Alex's Lemonade Stand
ALDI is proud to partner with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, an organization focused on funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. Since 2019 we’ve raised more than three million dollars to help find a cure. In addition to donating another $1 million, we’re proud to announce that by 2027, we will bring our total raised for ALSF to $10 million. We know our customers are passionate about supporting great causes. This year, there are two ways you can help us put the squeeze on childhood cancer: shop ALDI Finds with the Alex’s Lemonade Stand logo and/or donate directly.
Donate to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who was fighting cancer, wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. So, she set up a simple lemonade stand. When she passed away at the age of eight, she had reached her goal to raise $1 million. Today, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is one of the leading funders of childhood cancer research in the U.S.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Program
Starting this June 2022, shoppers can purchase lemon-themed items with the ALSF logo as well as reusable shopping bags that feature artwork designed by ALSF artists. A portion of proceeds from these items help ALDI provide donations to ALSF to support families with children battling cancer, up to $1 million.

More Childhood Heroes
A little change can make a big difference for kids like Lilly
Lilly is her family’s hero because this tiny girl has overcome more trauma than most adults. Lilly was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at one and a half years old and is currently in remission. She has a firecracker attitude and despite all she’s endured, she has remained strong. Lilly’s family calls her a superhero because she has fought cancer with a smile.
A little change can make a big difference for kids like Leevi
Leevi is his family’s hero because of how brave, determined, sweet, loving and kind he is. Leevi was diagnosed with anaplastic ependymoma in 2017. After being told there were no options for further treatment, Leevi was finally a match for a clinical trial and his family hopes for long term remission. His parents think he could have a bright future as a pediatric oncologist, but if you ask Leevi, he would say he wants to be a farmer and loves all things John Deere.
