Eureka, CA, May 17, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Local marketing company Strategic eMarketing is supporting Humboldt Lemonade Day by providing website design, social media updates and updates to http://humboldt.lemonadeday.org/.
Strategic eMarketing will also be working with Humboldt Lemonade Day to increase the program’s online presence via social media and blogging. With more ways to connect with the kids and the community, the Humboldt Lemonade Day group can provide the support and encouragement needed for the big day to be a success.
Humboldt Lemonade Day on June 2 is a part of the National Lemonade Day program (http://lemonadeday.org/). It’s a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches kids and teens how to start, own and operate their own business using a classic American example: the lemonade stand. The program got its start in Houston, Texas, in 2007. Since then, it has grown to 120,000 kids across 31 cities in both America and Canada.
“It’s very empowering for kids to experience building their own business and to learn the fundamentals of business,” said Strategic eMarketing owner Emanuel Rose. “We look forward to seeing all the young entrepreneurs and their lemonade stands on June 2.”
The Arcata Economic Development Corporation coordinates the program in Humboldt County, and program director and Queen of Lemonade Day Susan Seaman said Humboldt Lemonade Day provides a unique opportunity for many kids and their families.
“The real joy from Lemonade Day comes from talking to participants and hearing their stories. Parents and mentors work with kids to build stands, to try new recipes or pass down family recipes,” Seaman said. “Parents have an opportunity to talk to their kids about money, hard work and saving in an atmosphere of optimism.”
Humboldt County is one of only two communities in California that took part in the 2012 Lemonade Day, according to the national website’s map of participating cities.
Lemonade Day aims to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow.
