If you were walking around in London over the weekend and happened to buy lemonade from a pretty blonde lady and her adorable two kids, you most likely met academy award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

In what has to be one of the cutest celebrity fundraising initiatives ever, the actress and her two kids, Moses and Apple, set up some cardboard boxes as a stand and sold lemonade and chocolate chip cookies. Were they expensive? Nope. 1£ each to raise money for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The homemade sign misspelled the word snacks, so it kind of looks like they were selling lemonade and “snakes.” Also, money was spelled “mony.” Since the young kids seem to have written the sign, that ups the adorableness of the endeavor by 100%. While there was no sign of Coldplay singer Chris Martin, the family also had the help of a small white dog, quite possibly their Maltese named Daffodil.

No word on how much money they raised for the animal organization, but kudos to Ms. Paltrow for  helping her kids learn how to work to raise money for a cause.
