altReady for your morning money cry?

(Yes, that's a thing.)

Drew Cox, a 6-year-old living in Texas, set up a lemonade stand to raise money for his father Randy, who was diagnosed with cancer. Babble reports that the local television station publicized his mission and soon enough, cars were lined up around the block for 25-cent cups of lemonade.

"He is so important to me, we love to play with each other,” he was quoted as saying about his dad, who is currently undergoing his fourth round of chemo. And Drew wasn't shocked by the endless stream of customers: "I was thinking that everybody would come," he said.

The family's insurance doesn't cover the travel costs they incur over the course of Randy's treatment, so every little bit counts.

He ended up raising $10,000.
