Werner raises big bucks for worthy causes

August 9, 2012
Alissa Klenk - Reporter , Dysart Reporter

Isabelle Werner, daughter of Robin and Mark Werner, is only 12 years old, but she has a heart of compassion for those less fortunate than her. This year, she set up a lemonade stand at her home to raise money for Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook-Morrissey, two Evansdale girls who have been missing, and are believed to have been abducted, since July 13. Isabelle raised $796 this year and the proceeds were dropped off at the Evansdale Police Department.

With the help of her parents and her older sister, Ivy, she baked sugar cookies and made lemonade to sell. The support was so great that Isabelle was taking orders for cookies to be delivered at a later date.

Isabelle also had Webkinz stuffed animals that she no longer played with, so she decided it would be best to sell them for a good cause. Her mom made sleeping bags for each of the stuffed animals and Isabelle sold these upcycled stuffed animals with handcrafted sleeping bags for $15 each.

Each summer, Isabelle sets up a lemonade stand where she raises money for such organizations as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses, and Give Kids the World, a non-profit resort in Florida for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Isabelle's lemonade stands have been known to raise over $1000 in a day.
