RuffleButts Swimwear & Roshambo Eyewear Partner to Raise Money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer
The children’s brands have bundled together their best-selling swimsuits and sunglasses in an effort to raise money for the pediatric cancer charity, ALSF, this summer. It marks the beginning of a new partnership for the two brands, with exciting product expansions and fundraising for the future.
SAN DIEGO, CA - June 1, 2022 - Two leading kids brands working together for one amazing initiative! Join us as we raise money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) this summer. For every Summer Swimsuit Bundle we sell, we will donate 10% back to ALSF. Your little one will not only look adorable this summer in their RuffleButts swimsuit and Roshambo shades, but you will feel great knowing that you are helping raise money to help fight childhood cancer. Let’s put the squeeze on childhood cancer!
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is changing the lives of children with cancer by funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. You can access these bundles on both the Roshambo Eyewear website (www.roshambo.com) and RuffleButts (www.rufflebutts.com).
We are excited to kick off this new initiative with ALSF during their upcoming Lemonade Days campaign, and build a long term partnership raise money to help cure childhood cancer.

ABOUT ALEX’S LEMONADE STAND FOUNDATION
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of 4-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Scott, who was fighting cancer and wanted to raise money to find cures for all children with cancer. Her spirit and determination inspired others to support her cause, and when she passed away at the age of 8, she had raised $1 million.
Since then, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement. Today, ALSF is one of the leading funders of pediatric cancer research in the U.S. and Canada raising more than $250 million so far, funding over 1,000 research projects and providing programs to families affected by childhood cancer.
