$1,705 of $1,515 goal

Raised by 41 people in 5 months
Alexandra is an 8-year-old from Charlotte, North Carolina on a mission to help families in need on Thanksgiving.  You may remember her fundraiser from last year; she set out to raise enough money to provide Charlotte Rescue Mission with 10 Thanksgiving food boxes.  She not only met that goal but exceeded it ten times over and provided Charlotte Rescue Mission with 100 food boxes and 17 turkeys. It was a phenomenal experience for her to watch her community come together and help those in need.  She raised 100% of the money for those boxes by hosting lemonade stands, bake sales, making phone calls to friends and neighbors, and even giving a presentation to her class. 
Her goal this year is to raise enough money to provide 101 Thanksgiving food boxes for Charlotte Rescue Mission.  It’s a big goal but she has a big heart and we know she can do it. 100% of the money she raises will go to providing Charlotte Rescue Mission with their Thanksgiving Day Food Boxes.  Each box will cost approximately $15 must contain the following:

Container/Box – Small packing box, dimensions 16-3/8” x 12-5/8” x 12-5/8”
Green beans                                  38oz can
Whole kernel corn                        29oz can
Cut sweet yams                             40oz can
Cranberry sauce                            14oz can
Stove Top Stuffing Mix                6oz box
Turkey or Brown gravy mix         1 package
Boil-n-Bag Rice, 4 count              14oz box
Dry Pie Crust Mix                         Betty Crocker Pie Crust Mix (11oz) or Jiffy Pie Crust Mix (9oz)
Cherry or Apple Pie Filling          21oz can
Disposable Baking Pan for Pie     8” x 8”
If you would like to help her reach her goal of 101 boxes, please consider donating.  Your donation is not only helping a family in need enjoy a delicious home cooked meal together on Thanksgiving but also helping Alex to continue see the joy in helping others and the beauty of a community coming together.

And that’s a wrap, folks! As you know, her goal was to raise $1,515 to provide Charlotte Rescue Mission with 101 Thanksgiving food boxes. She spent hours baking cookies and making lemonade for her lemonade stands and hours selling them. She spoke to each person, telling them the reason behind her lemonade stands and thanking them for helping her. So many people showed up for this girl - family, friends, neighbors, classmates, the teenage boy who came back 3 times for cookies, a FedEx driver, total strangers who just stopped to help, and of course, amazing support from our friends and family from literally coast to coast. It’s been another amazing year. She truly worked hard for this money. I also want to say that Caroline has been right by her side this whole time and super excited to help. She seems to really understand this year and I think that next year she’ll be completely in on all the action with Alex. The Fischer Girls on a mission.
Her grand total is $2,154! She will be providing CRM with 130 Thanksgiving boxes and 50 turkeys!! Amazing!
We’d like to say thank you again to everyone for supporting her and her desire to help others. She was able to meet this goal because so many people believed in her and were there to support her.
So many families in Charlotte will now have a warm, home cooked Thanksgiving meal.
Stay tuned for shopping updates and the final delivery. That’s the best part - delivering them to Charlotte Rescue Mission and seeing the community coming together to help those in need. ❤️❤️❤️

Hi everyone! A HUGE thank you to everyone who has helped Alex get this far. She's been working very hard to raise money to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need in the Charlotte area via Charlotte Rescue Mission's Thanksgiving Food Box program. She recently invited the ENTIRE 3rd grade from her school to her lemonade stand and raised $210! She's hosting another one this weekend in hopes of reaching her final goal. She's so close - a grand total of $1,295 including the money from her lemonade stand and some cash donations from friends. She's just $220 shy and we know she'll do it! Her heart is about as big as they come and we're so proud of her desire to help others. This is a picture from her recent lemonade stand.
