    VANCOUVER, July 3 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:     Vancouver youngster Robert McCurdy (8) and his sister
              Rachel (7) will join hundreds of kids from across the country
              this summer to "take a stand" for a cause they care about
              thanks to support from Sunkist Growers.

              Encouraging future philanthropists and entrepreneurs, Sunkist's
              "Take a Stand" program squeezes some fun into summer by giving
              kids the tools to support a charity of their choice by selling
              freshly-squeezed Sunkist lemonade.

              Robert and Rachel pledged online at www.sunkist.com/takeastand
              to sell freshly-squeezed lemonade to benefit the BC Children's
              Hospital, a charity they chose because they want to help sick
              kids get better. With their lemonade stand, the siblings will
              be able to make a difference one glass at a time.
