Lemonade Stand Robbed (what is happening in our world)
Lets help this family...
How COULD they? Thieves steal $150 from lemonade stand set up by girls to raise money for gravely ill toddler
Three girls selling lemonade from a stand in order to raise money for a gravely ill toddler were robbed of the $150 they had made.
Authorities say a man and a woman approached the girls and asked them about the stand when they snatched the money jar, scratching one of the girls in the process and running away.
The money was for two-year-old Logan Varnadoe who was born with just a third of a brain, has cortical blindness, deafness and has had multiple surgeries for hernias and intestinal problems, according to 11Alive.com.
He will be airlifted from The Children's Hospital in Macon to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Centre for treatment that isn't available anywhere in Georgia.
Amber Umbarger, 21, from Warner Robins, was arrested on the scene and has been charged with three counts of robbery by snatching.
Police are still looking for Gage Turner, 20,also from Warner Robins.
Logan's cousin Chelsea Edwards and her two friends are still recovering from the shock.
Logan and Chelsea's grandmother Judy Bailey told 11Alive.com: 'I still cant get over it. My granddaughter was lying on the ground crying, devastated.
'She's been really having a hard time at night, the last two nights. I said "It's going to be okay. We're going to get there. One way or another we're going to get to Cincinnati, all of us. Don't you worry".'
Houston County Sheriff's Lt John Holland called the robbery 'a first' for him in his years of crime-fighting, saying: 'I've never had a case where a child at a lemonade stand has been robbed.'
A number of donations have already been made to Logan's fund. Click on the below link if you would like to donate.
