For months, Leeland Garrison heard about Inheritance of Hope. His school raised money to send families on Legacy Retreats®, and then his dad became a retreat volunteer last November. A friend attended the April 2020 eLegacy Retreat™, and by July, Leeland decided he wanted to be involved himself. So, the entrepreneurial rising fourth-grader and budding philanthropist organized a lemonade stand.
“I had the idea to do one a couple of years ago, but we just never followed through with it,” he says. “But I started learning a lot about IoH, and my dad went on a retreat, and all this crazy stuff happened like my friend’s mom got cancer. So, my mom said we could have one on the Fourth of July.” And have one they did.
