Little Leaders Series: Tate Barton

I have a little something new for you and it’s something I want to do on a monthly basis going forward because I feel as though it’s important to shed some light on the little shining stars in our communities. It could be a combination of everything going on in this world, and me being a mom but lately, when I see a ‘little one’ doing something good, I tear up and my heart starts to swell and I think “My god, I hope I raise my little Leo to be a leader like this!”… I am SO proud of all the kids out there who are doing SO much good. Those who are growing their hair for cancer, opting out of birthday gifts for charity donations instead, those trying to live a plant-based lifestyle, even kids who are making us laugh or helping out a friend in need. My heart literally wants to burst (I’m crying writing this right now) for these kids and want them to know THAT WE ARE SEEING WHAT THEY ARE DOING and we LOVE THEM! Kudos to the moms, dads and support system these kids have in order to live with such compassion and empathy! The point of this monthly feature is to spotlight these special little leaders and help them with their efforts and hope to encourage other kids, youth, and families to follow suit!

So without further adieu, here is THIS months, “LITTLE LEADER”, TATE BARTON!

Tate is a 9-year-old boy from High River who sadly lost his mother after a four year battle with cancer. Months after Tate’s mother passed away, he started a lemonade stand in hopes to raise money to expand the local cancer centre where his mother was treated. Four years in a row Tate has attended the Little Britches Rodeo Parade in High River selling his lemonade, in the last three years he has raised over $26,000, this money was donated to the 1.6 million dollar High River Cancer Centre expansion project! In his fourth

Four years in a row Tate has attended the Little Britches Rodeo Parade in High River selling his lemonade, in the last three years he has raised over $26,000, this money was donated to the 1.6 million dollar High River Cancer Centre expansion project! In his fourth year, Tate raised $9,000 which will go towards supporting cancer programs and services.

Tate plans on continuing his lemonade stand until his is 18 years old and hopes to raise $250,000 towards cancer research!

Make sure to watch the clip below to learn more about Tate and his amazing fundraising efforts! He is truly an inspiration to many!!

What an amazing little dude!! Thank you SO MUCH for being you, Tate! I have no doubt in my mind that you are making your mom very, very, proud!!

Make sure to send us an email at info@jillianharris.com if you know a Little Leader that should be featured! Please make sure to include details along with photos.

    Hi Jillian! I’m a great fan of yours and I want to thank you for recognizing Tate Barton. You are well aware of what an awesome and amazing kid he is….and how loved by his Dad. This is a great idea you’ve had with this Little Leaders thing and I wish you all kinds of love to keep it going. I also hope to see more of you on your shows!

    Poor Nacho. Feel bad for all of you. On a good note he will not be able to get on the couches and beds because if he tries to jump down he may do more damage.

    FYI: when we had our pups I used a deep fitted sheet over our bed during the day to keep the bedding free of mud and critters that could attach themselves to our pups. Fitted white crib sheets worked great on our couch cushions

    Good luck ?

    Hi Jill!

    My heart breaks every time I hear about someone being affected by cancer, especially when it’s a child :(. WAY too many people are being taken from this horrible disease! You are a great person for advocating these special children for their amazing acts of kindness :).

    Tate, you are an amazing kid! Way to go for raising all of that money from your lemonade stand and donating it to the High River Cancer Centre where your mom was treated! I’m sure you will definitely reach your goal of $250,000 by the time you are 18 years old :). I wish I could donate money to your lemonade stand, but unfortunately I live in Ontario.

    Also, just to help you out, I noticed that some of the information in the story above was duplicated, and I’m not sure if you are able to fix it, not a big deal or anything, I just thought you might want to know :).
