For many parents, watching your kids set up a lemonade stand in the front yard is a quintessential part of summer. Now, what if your kids’ lemonade stand was taken over by a motorcade of tough, thirsty bikers? That’s exactly what happened to one Iowa family, and the reality is much more heartwarming than you may think.
Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) is a non-profit organization that works to create a safer environment for abused children and their families. Recently, the local BACA chapter rode their bikes up to two young sisters’ lemonade stand. Before the Long family knew it, a line of motorcycles flooded down the block, filling the neighborhood with the sound of roaring engines. Parents Karla and DeKarlo were stunned by BACA’s unexpected presence, then delighted by these kindhearted strangers.
DeKarlo immediately started filming the touching scene, then posted it to Facebook. “One of the most amazing things just happened. Our girls were doing a lemonade stand and the biker group called BACA (Bikers against Child Abuse) stopped at the house for lemonade.” Dad’s video quickly went viral, being shared nearly 40,000 times!
