Brady Campbell’s dad tragically passed away, earlier this month, after loosing battle with a terrible disease. However, despite the devastating news, the six year old little boy remembered he has a promise to keep, since he and his dad came up with an idea to raise some money to take his mother on a date.
Therefore, the Denver-based kid opened up a lemonade stand in order to keep his promise, the Fox News reports. Only, his incredible story quickly caught the community’s attention including the local firefighters and police officers.
“My dad and I came up with the idea of a lemonade stand to take my mom on a date because I didn’t have enough money and I wanted to pay, so I did it,” Brady told Fox News 31 Denver.
The boy’s incredible initiative has impressed all to tears, including his mom. “It was amazing. You could just feel the warmth and energy and such a positive thing in such a tragic time for us. It really lifted our spirits and really made Brady so happy. Brandon was a savvy businessman and wanted to teach Brady all those lessons, and I could just [see] it happening. It made my heart really happy,” Brady’s mother Amanda said.

“Maybe we will have our Friday night date night. Brandon and I used to do that, so I think we will start that and take the time to spend that time together. I feel like [the lemonade stand] gives some purpose to such a tragedy,” Brady’s mom added.
Brady managed to sell more lemonade than expecting, taking home $244 on that day. But from now on, no lemonade stand is required since a neighbor started a GoFundMe campaign in his name. So far, more than $53,000 have been raised. According to the NY Post, the money will be donated to to the Brandon Campbell Memorial Fund at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
