Support kids' entrepreneurial efforts - fundraising,
selling Girl Scout Cookies, car washes, lemonade stands, etc.

America is America because of our Constitution and values. Our Constitution and laws give each of us the opportunity to become what we want and to make a good life. Our values give us the model for being successful. Among these values are personal responsibility, hard work, and an entrepreneurial spirit.

When young Americans display an interest in earning money for themselves or in earning money for some cause, we should support them any way we can. Whether it’s setting up a lemonade stand, taking on a paper route, selling Girl Scout cookies, finding a summer job, or participating in a car wash for a school function, we should all support these entrepreneurial efforts with words, purchases, and our time.
