Bailee Madison: Hangs out at Alex’s Lemonade Stand

Youth Impact Report 2011: Power of Youth

WHO: At 12, Bailee Madison is one of the most accomplished actresses her age, appearing in serious dramas (like “Brothers” and “Conviction”) and broad studio comedies (such as Adam Sandler starrer “Just Go With It”). She landed the lead in “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” after her “Brothers” co-star Natalie Portman recommended her to producer Guillermo del Toro. Next up is family comedy “Us & Them” with Bette Midler and Billy Crystal.

WHAT: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation developed from a modest fund-raising project by cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). At the age of 4, Scott announced she wanted to erect a lemonade stand in her front yard, donating the proceeds to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since then, the Foundation has raised more than $45 million toward her goal, funding more than 200 research projects nationally.

WHY: “You are never too young to make a difference,” Madison says. “Pass out some lemonade! You never know: Your $2 could be the dollar that finds a cure!”

WHAT’S NEXT: A fundraising cookout featuring chef Suzanne Goin, business partner Caroline Styne, chef David Lentz and honorary hosts Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka as part of the second annual L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade event Nov. 6 at the Culver Studios mansion.
