Boise family opens lemonade stand to benefit Red Cross
The enterprising duo also created an elaborate display detailing the work of the Red Cross in Idaho for customers of the lemonade stand.

Two Boise siblings may have careers in American Red Cross fundraising ahead of them.

Last week, Jayanth and Karthik Mouli, ages 11and 16, opened a lemonade stand at the busy corner of Park and Walnut streets near Boise's Municipal Park, with the goal of raising funds for the American Red Cross of Greater Idaho.

The enterprising duo also created an elaborate display detailing the work of the Red Cross in Idaho for customers of the stand.

When their father, Chandra Mouli, contacted the Red Cross, the siblings had raised $102 at the stand. Chandra graciously agreed to match his children's donation with his own $100 contribution.

Jayanth is a student at Collister Elementary School and the Treasure Valley Mathematics and Science Center. Karthik attends Boise High School.

The Red Cross would like to thank the Mouli family for their generosity and commitment to helping their neighbors in times of crisis.
