Country Time is paying it forward to the country’s youngest entrepreneurs with their “Littlest Bailout” stimulus check program.
“We know this will be a rough summer for lemonade stands. And if the big guys are getting bailed out, why shouldn’t we help the littlest entrepreneurs get the same treatment?” the company said in a statement on their website.
The powdered beverage company is issuing stimulus checks to children who have had to shut-down their summer lemonade stands due to the current coronavirus pandemic.
“Country Time has a history of helping lemonade stands when they are in trouble, like stepping in to pay for permit fees and fines, and this year is no different,” explained Andrew Deckert, a brand manager at Country Time. “Due to social distancing guidelines, lemonade stands aren’t what they used to be. We want to help kids foster their entrepreneurial spirit by offering a small relief to those who can’t operate their lemonade stands this summer.”
For parents and guardians of children who are 14-years-old or younger, can submit a bailout application on behalf of their family’s lemonade operator. No purchase is necessary, and a one prize limit will be applied for each winning household.
The deadline for applications will be on Aug. 12, CLICK HERE to apply.
