SAUSALITO (CBS SF) — Grade-schoolers in the North Bay banded together to raise money for charity in a very childlike way: selling lemonade and cookies.

Kids that participated in the Good Warrior Program set up stands in Sausalito with a simple, yet effective marketing line.

“We just say lemonade and cookies for charity.”

The initiative teaches 7-14 year olds that philanthropy can be fun.

“It’s like having a party with your friends,” Sawyer Kerr said.

Every dollar the children raised was donated to Tipping Point, a Bay Area non-profit serving families in need.

Parents hope the fundraising gets the more fortunate kids exposed to the wider world.

“They think about their broader community, and they’re not inside all day on their screens.  And for us, that’s great,” Good Warrior Program founder Ruth McDaniels said.

As for how much money was raised, the kids weren’t exactly sure.

“All we know is that we have a lot,” 9-year old Charlotte Kerr said.
