Monica Fields, her son Cole and his friend Nik operated a lemonade and brownie stand on April 14 near The Island Cow on Sanibel, with the proceeds donated to F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva.

According to Fields, the children came up with the idea by themselves and they wanted to share information about F.I.S.H. with anyone that stopped by their stand. One of their first customers, Billy Kirkland, applauded their efforts and paid for anyone stopping by who was riding a Billy’s Bike.

“This is such a fun way to build awareness about our organization,” Maggi Feiner, president and chief executive officer of F.I.S.H. of San-Cap, said. “I am so pleased to see our young islanders giving back to our community to help our neighbors. It was very generous of Cole and Nik to donate their time and energy, as well as their proceeds, to F.I.S.H. Thank you all, and thank you Billy for paying it forward.”
