National Lemonade Day was founded by Michael Holthouse in 2007 in his hometown of Houston, Texas to bring the spirit of entrepreneurship to the youth of the America. Through LemonadeDay.org, millions of kids around the nation learn what it takes to run a business in a fun and constructive way—a lemonade stand.
Not only is Lemonade Day a perfect time to enjoy a glass of lemonade, but it also gives us an chance to support an amazing ostomate/entrepreneur in our community.
MJ Pureza has been a graphic designer in Australia for over 15 years. Since getting an ileostomy last year because of ulcerative colitis, she's been using her illustrations to help raise awareness. MJ's Instagram page is filled with fun graphics and inspiring messages.
You'll be seeing a lot more of MJ's artwork on OC because we've invited her to join our awesome team. She'll be creating amazing custom graphics just like the one below.
Lemonade or just plain water with lemons—which ever one you choose, just be sure to stay hydrated dear ostomates!
