Pay It Forward

At 17 yrs old I was planning my wedding and moving to Seattle. I didn’t have a thought about creating an empire or making a difference in the world.

At 17 yrs old Madison is paying it forward partnering with various charities around the world, donating items from her footwear and clothing lines. She also is teaming up with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to support its Saving Animals from Extinction campaign, by donating a portion of every sale to help protect some of the world’s most endangered animals. She is at 17 yrs old, already a well established LemonadeMaker.

What are three things that you would do with your money if you were a teenage millionaire?

When Madison was 7 she came up with designs for flip-flops featuring sea creatures. Her designs in the past 10 years have evolved into entire footwear and clothing lines. With over $1M in sales, she has already has her entire college education paid for.

At 14 yrs old when she saw a Tweet that Nordstrom was looking for new product lines, Robinson wrote a letter to a buyer at the retail giant, which resulted in FishFlops being sold in 64 Nordstrom stores by July of 2012.

I printed an application about a month ago to start writing articles on a pretty major site – it is still in my to do box because of my procrastination about being a “good enough” writer to be on their site. She has inspired me to be more confident in my ideas and dreams and get the dang thing filled out and apply to be approved.
