Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to helping children with the disease through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. Founded in 2005, ALSF was started by Jay and Liz Scott. After the passing of their daughter Alex, the Scotts vowed to raise money to help doctors find a cure.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and The Meet Group will honor it by offering a custom gift on each of MeetMe, Skout and Tagged that users can purchase to help offset travel costs for families wishing to be near their hospitalized children as part of ALSF’s Travel for Care program.

“Our members enjoyed coming together and raising funds for Ryan’s Well Foundation and have been looking forward to their next opportunity to give,” said Catherine Connelly, co-founder and VP of Brand Strategy at The Meet Group. “Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the United States. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is an amazing organization that helps many children in need. Their Travel for Care Program offers immediate assistance to families who must travel for treatment. I believe our members will embrace ALSF and their mission.”

The Meet Group plans to make a donation for every Alex’s Lemonade gift sent in the apps up to an aggregate of $10,000 to ALSF. The limited edition gift will be available from September 7th through September 21st.
