Lemonade Stand Profits Go to Special Horse

Updated: Wednesday, July 9 2014, 08:46 AM CDT
DES MOINES, Iowa (KCCI-TV) —This is not the typical "for profit" lemonade stand. Even though 11-year-old Logan Kempf has her own horse to worry about, she’s trying to help another.
Logan has been riding horses since she was 2 years old, and it’s that passion that inspired her to help a horse in need.
“One of my grandma's friends, she owns a horse stable out in Chariton. And her horse came back from the trainer with an inch and a half puncture wound in her leg,” Logan said.
The horse has a bone infection, which is why surgery to heal the leg is so costly. The horse, Jewel, may not survive without a $3,000 surgery.
By selling one 50-cent cup at a time with a few cookies and muffins in between, she is trying to make sure Jewel gets the surgery she needs.
“So she decided that she as going to have a fundraiser, and we just kind of thought, oh well that's nice Logan. But she took off with this and here we are,” said Myra Laing, Logan’s grandmother.
For an 11-year-old, Logan has some mean marketing skills, which have led to some major donors leaving $20.
It’s not the way most kids choose to spend summer break, but for Logan, it’s ideal.
“I'm hoping that it can make an impact not just for this, but in the future for any other horse,” she said.
Logan's stand should be at 37th Street and Grand Avenue for the next week or so, and you can also donate online at Stand Profits Go to Special Horse
