46NYC initially partnered with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) in creating the “cur46le” t-shirt. Founded in 2007, 46NYC is an apparel company that designs and manufactures its own line of apparel and accessories to raise money and awareness for multiple areas of need. Created by three easy-going, t-shirt loving kind of guys (Graham, Hal and John), 46NYC grew from their dream to provide consumers with a fashionable way to be involved with causes that matter. 46NYC has built solid partnerships with numerous worthwhile children’s charitable organizations, including ALSF, while offering a wide array of products that are durable, high-quality, comfortable and stylish.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). 2010 marks 10 years since 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $50 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 200 research projects nationally.
