TO VISIT SACRAMENTO, CA
In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, Thetwilightbus.com, Barnes and Noble Book Store and UA Arden Fair Theater Sacramento, will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand on Saturday, October 17, 2009 from 12-4 PM at 1721 Arden Way Sacramento, CA. We will be out Promoting Summit Entertainment's New Moon, Sequel to Twilight. TheTwilightBus.com is finding a way to give back. The twilight bus started as a small project of a Mom of 10 kids, many with special needs. Knowing the struggles of being a parent of a child who battles a life threatening condition, bus Owner Danielle Silva and her kids wanted to find a way to help other parents in similar situations. What better way to help another parent then to help find a cure for the disease. Many Business in the community helped to give the retired old school bus a new look and a new lease on life. So now we want to give back too. Let's help give kids fighting cancer their New lease on life.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). At the age of 4, 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 $25 million towards fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 100 research projects nationally.
T-shirt sales will profit ALSF.
WHAT: TheTwilightBus’s Lemonade Bus Stand
12 – 4PM
WHERE: 1721 Arden Way

OK I had to Tweet (we are on twitter) about the fact that we were laughing and contemplating taking pictures of the people literally hanging out their car windows on the freeway trying to take pictures of the bus!!
We went to Arden Fair Mall today and ran into fans of our own! More and more often we come out of a store to find people surrounding the bus and we are constantly having people snapping pictures. Well I decided we are going to take pics of some of the bus fans and post them here and perhaps have a section inside the bus to put fan photos. So here is our first official fan photo.
These fans are from Oregon..

OK so more people are asking why we would make a Twilight bus so I thought I would answer here.
First off we have 10 kids, a few who are special needs and medically fragile. We came across a small school bus for sale and it fit us all and the medical equipment and our strollers in it so we bought it.
I know it is embarrassing to be seen driving around in a "short bus" at least for my older kids so we thought of a way to make it less of an embarrassment and more fun to be seen in.
Me and most of my kids are HUGE Twilight fans so we decided to make it into a fan based sort of Mobile museum. The bus is our main mode of transportation so it is driven EVERYWHERE! We painted it black , With the help of a Local body Shop (Larrie Cain's Collision Center) and we got a sign guy (ICR signs) to make all the vinyl for it. We paid for materials and the companies donated their time.
Inside we are collecting Twilight memorabilia of all kinds to put on display. The only music that plays is the Twilight soundtrack of which we know all the words (even my 17 month old knows how to "sing" along).
We are teaming with Twifans.com to get some more things for inside the bus. So far we have 3 posters, a photo and a copy of the Twilight script (complete with facsimile signatures from Ebay!)
We have been stopped by people all over wanting to take a picture and it is not even done yet! This Tuesday the bus goes in to get it vinyl on it. We will be featured in the local newspaper on Thursday. We are so excited!
I am trying and hoping to maybe contact some of the actors from the movies to get some special things for the inside.
We do not charge anyone for anything, everyone who wants to can come see it take pictures ect. We are just trying to make a positive out of a negative and to bring positive attention to our family in a fun way.
So join us. If you have something you would like to donate email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you contact info and any donations of Items will have the donor's name on it on display inside (unless the donor does not want it on).
Hope this answers your questions but feel free to contact me if you have more!
