TikTok Canada to serve free whipped lemonade in Vancouver to support mental-health organization

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      This Labour Day weekend, you’ll have one more chance to visit a lemonade stand—and it’s for an important cause.

      TikTok Canada announced that it will be handing out free whipped lemonade at pop-up stands at two locations in Vancouver this weekend.

      And while most may just think of this event in terms of pleasure, the social-media company is doing this to support Made of Millions, an international nonprofit that is aiming to change perceptions of mental health and provides educational resources to Canadians.

      For every lemonade given out, TikTok will donate $20 to Made of Millions, up to a maximum of $20,000.

      The two locations will be operating (while supplies last) at:

      • in Kitsilano at Cornwall Avenue and Yew Street from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday (September 4);
      • in the West End at Davie and Denman streets from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday (September 5).

      Following the Dalgona coffee craze in 2020, whipped lemonade is another creamy beverage said to originate in South Korea and it went viral this summer.

      The classic version of the frothy drink is made with condensed milk, lemon juice, and water (the vegan version is usually made with coconut cream substituting for condensed milk).
