Two British boys Ayaan Moose and Mikaeel Ishaa have been running a lemonade stall in London for the last nine weeks to raise funds for victims of the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The six-year-olds have now received a surprise donation from superstar Angelina Jolie.
“Hi Angelina, I’m Ayaan. And I’m Mikaeel. And we’re the LemonAid boys. We just wanted to say thank you for donating to our cause. It’s really helped us raise more money and awareness for Yemen,” the boys took to Instagram as they shared a picture of Angelina’s card received with the undisclosed donation.
