A group of Omaha kids came up with a plan to help the people of Texas.

Children in a neighborhood near Fowler and 144th avenues set up shop Tuesday selling lemonade. But instead of keeping the cash, they're sending it to hurricane and flood victims in Texas.

At first, the kids and their parents had sent some clothes and other goods, then thought outside the box to raise money with their “Lemonade for Texas” stand.

“I raised my kids to be good, godly kids and have that helping hearts,” said their mom, Kimmy Lea Konsel. “So when they ask to help with other things like this, then I definitely want to help with that and encourage their serving hearts.”

The kids had their stand set up for two hours today and pulled in $245 for the cause.
