(June 2, 2015 – Milwaukee, WI) King Juice Company, Inc., proud producer of Calypso flavored Lemonades, Limeades and Teamonades®, has announced a partnership with Lemons of Love (LOL), a charity organization that delivers Chemo Care Packages to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment. Lemons of Love was founded by Jill Swanson, a cancer survivor who underwent chemotherapy treatment in 2014. Lemons of Love’s care bags are hand made by volunteer stitchers and contain special products that were essential in Swanson’s healing during her own cancer treatments.
Lemons of Love is based on the well-known expression, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” but with a twist, “When life gives you lemons, laugh out loud,” – giving greater meaning to Lemons of Love’s “LOL” acronym. Given Lemons of Love’s lemon theme, and lemonade’s universal association with happiness, lemonade has been one of the centerpiece items in Lemons of Love’s care bags since the charity’s inception. Through their partnership, Calypso Lemonades will become the lemonade provider to Lemons of Love, and each Lemons of Love Chemo Care Package will include a bottle of Calypso Original Lemonade.
“King Juice is a company that believes deeply in Lemons for Love’s mission. As a lemonade category leader, we feel that this partnership is a great fit, and we are proud have Calypso Lemonades associated with the Lemons for Love charity,” said Tim Kezman, President of King Juice Company, Inc., Calypso Lemonades’ parent company. “Jill’s passion for this cause is inspiring, and we are thrilled Calypso Lemonades can assist Lemons of Love in its quest to help cancer patients.”
“The purpose behind Lemons for Love is to bring smiles to people’s faces, and that’s what a Calypso Lemonade does,” added Swanson. “We are thrilled to have Calypso Lemonades as a partner as we try to fulfill our mission of bringing happiness to more and more people going through the tough and challenging process of cancer treatment.”
Lemons of Love, Inc. is headquartered in Des Plaines, IL, and its Chemo Care Packages are delivered to local hospitals and also sent to cancer patients nationwide. Those interested in helping share Lemons for Love’s “gifts of humanity,” can make a donation by visiting the Lemons for Love website.
