Children's lemonade stands raise money for Santa Monica-Malibu schools

Jun 20, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
'A lot of my past teachers have gotten a pink slip and I want to save them,' one girl says. The district's $7.1 million in budget cuts includes all elementary school libraries and some music programs.

A group of children manned a lemonade stand on a Santa Monica street corner Saturday morning, waving posters urging passersby to buy a beverage and a cookie and help "Save Our Teachers." A woman pulled up in an SUV, ordered five cookies and handed over a $100 bill. She told the youngsters to give her only $50 in change.
