South Carolina 9-year-old raises over $1500 for 'Black Lives Matter' at lemonade stand

Dylan Cabe made over $1500 at his lemonade stand, and he donated all of the proceeds to Black Lives Matter.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A nine-year-old in the Midlands raised money to support 'Black Lives Matter' over the weekend. 

Dylan Cabe, a rising 5th grader at Satchel Ford Elementary School, made over $1500 at his lemonade stand over the weekend. 

Instead of keeping the money for himself, Cabe donated the money.

"I just really like making lemonade stands and second I just really wanted to help out," Cabe said. 

Many of Dylan's friends who weren't able to buy lemonade at the stand in person still supported the cause online thanks to a pay-pal account set up by his family. 

"It was really important to do and seeing the money we raised was really a huge thing," says Andy Cabe, Dylan's father. "I thought we would raise a couple of dollars but what ended up happening was we were getting $50, $100, $200 from one person."

Dylan says he's hoping to do another lemonade stand to raise money for St. Jude's hospital next month.
