(Newser) – It's sad enough that three little girls running a lemonade stand in Georgia were robbed of $150—even sadder when you add in the fact that they were selling the lemonade to raise money for a hospitalized 2-year-old. Authorities say a man and woman approached the stand Saturday and grabbed the money jar from a 13-year-old. The money was meant to help a cousin of one of the girls, who is about to undergo treatment for an intestinal disease.
