Alya Grace has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. From the time she was 4 she would make holiday themed crafts with her grandmother and sell them for a couple dollars to family and friends.
When her family moved to their new home, she often asked if she could have a lemonade stand in the front yard. In addition to her entrepreneurial spirit, she also loves to give to others. Shortly after her fifth birthday she donated her hair to Locks of Love. For her 7th birthday she told her parents she didn’t want any gifts. Instead, she asked her family and friends to donate to a charity of their choosing. She has also participated in walks to raise money for multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease. In the fall of 2015, she decided to combine her love of creating things with her desire to help others. With a little help from her family, Alya founded Grace Faith and Hope. Since its founding Grace Faith and Hope has donated thousands of dollars to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a leading pediatric cancer foundation, as well given hundreds of bracelets to sick children.

Alya helped design the bracelets that are offered for sale. She also helps to fill orders. 20% of profits from every sale goes directly to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to help eliminate childhood cancer. For more information about the ALSF, click here.
