Little girl sells lemonade to buy new bike after old one was stolen

DENVER — A 9-year-old girl from south Denver is selling lemonade so she can buy a new bike to replace the one a thief stole from her a couple weeks ago.

Nay Vigil’s stand is setup at the corner of Federal Boulevard and Mexico Avenue.

For fifty cents, you can get a cup of lemonade and help support a heartwarming effort.

“It was one of my favorite birthday presents I’ve ever got,” Nay said of her bike. “And then I just decided why don’t I have a lemonade stand so I can make some money?”

So far, Nay has welcomed several customers to her stand.

She’s not sure how long it will take to earn enough money to buy a new bike, but in the meantime she’s learning an important lesson about what’s right and what’s wrong.

She even has a message for the thief who stole her bike:

“I would just tell them, ‘Well that’s the wrong thing that you steal! And that stealing is a bad thing! And just to let you know I’ll earn my own money and get my own bike,” the little girl said.
