HONOLULU (KHON2) — Life handed everyone lemons in 2020 but as the saying goes, one 10-year-old boy is making lemonade–literally.

For about four years, Nainoa Tindle has been making lemonade. He’s been selling it from his family’s Alani Drive carport in Manoa to earn an allowance.
But now, he’s using it to give to Toys for Tots.
“Before I used to sell as a capitalist, but I decided to sell for Toys for Tots this year to help fundraise,” said Tindle.
He’s going to use the money to shop with a friend, who is a retired Marine, so he can donate to the program.
The young capitalist turned philanthropist even brought in investors–his parents.
“So basically what they’re gonna do–whatever my earnings are–they’re gonna match it. For example, if I earn $5, they’re going to give me $5 more which equals to $10,” he explained.
It’s a bit of a math lesson, but for Tindle that’s just child’s play.
The young entrepreneur also gave KHON2 a sales tip. Tindle said he made more tips by keeping his operation simple, which is why when he grows up, he wants to operate a small business.
Tindle will sell his homemade lemonade next weekend on Oct. 24 and 25 to benefit Toys for Tots on Alani Drive from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
