People Are Showing Up From All Over To Buy This 9 Year-Old's Lemonade

August 2, 2014

A 9-year-old New Jersey boy started a lemonade stand in hopes of raising enough money to buy new hearing aids. Thanks to the generosity of friends, neighbors and complete strangers, Logan Phelps has raised nearly $4,000.

Logan has been wearing hearing aids since he was five and they needed to be replaced. But hearing aids are expensive, costing over three thousand dollars, with insurance only covering a very small amount. Being one of five children in a family with tight finances, he took matters into his own hands.

Turns out people started coming out in large numbers, by car, on foot, skateboards, and even scooters.

The police department chipped in, along with the fire department and a motorcycle club who stopped by with a check for $525.

Logan's mother, Kim, thought it would take at least a year to raise the much needed money.

"And of course like every time I'm crying and tearing up," his mother said. "I really never thought this was going to happen. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart."

If there's any money left over, the family plans to pay it forward.
