Who are the Lemonaide Boys?

Ayaan Moosa and Mikaeel Ishaaq are two friends aged 6 who started a lemonade stall with the help from their parents. The two boys offer the sweet and sour tasting freshly squeezed lemonade for $3 dollars to passers-by. The boys want to raise funds to help people of Yemen, which is one of the Arab world’s poorest nation.

To support their initiative, Angelina Jolie had sent the boys a donation along with a card. The actor had written in the card, “Thank you for what you and your friends are doing to help children in Yemen. I’m sorry I’m not able to buy a lemonade from you, but I’d still like to make a donation to your stand.”

The handle of Lemonaidboys had revealed in the post that they were “blown away” as she is “one of the biggest stars in the world”. The caption also read, "9 weeks on from the initial fundraiser .. the lemonaid boys have received an extremely generous donation from Angelina Jolie along with this amazing card!" It was also revealed that boys intend to carry on the good work they have been doing to raise awareness and money. Check out the post below.
