When his father was laid off from work, this 10-year-old kid in Saskatchewan started a lemonade stand to help his family pay the bills.
Lise LeBlanc was so moved by Jayden's story that she wrote a Facebook post about meeting him. "I'm doing this because my dad is really poor right now," Jayden told her. "He got laid off in May and we don't even have power right now."
Thanks to that Facebook post, Jayden now has customers from several cities dropping by for a drink, according to The Saskatoon StarPhoenix . This guy bought 10 glasses and paid $20 for each, just to help him out.
Jayden's mom Amanda said she didn't even know her son's reason for starting the lemonade stand until it blew up on Facebook, but she's very proud of him. "He's always like this," she told CTV Saskatoon. "He's caring and loving and just likes to help everybody."
