‘Suicide Squad’ Stars Dropped By a Toronto Girl’s Charity Lemonade Stand on the Weekend

There’s nothing better to cure those dark Monday morning thoughts than a local feel-good story.

And this should (almost) perk you up as much as your coffee.

The stars of Suicide Squad are still in Toronto and turning up all over town. Most recently, on John Street, when they stopped by a six-year-old Toronto girl’s charity lemonade stand.

Na’Ama Uzan was selling lemonade on Sunday to raise money to find a cure for her seven-year-old brother’s rare genetic condition when Suicide Squad stars Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney dropped by for a glass. They had heard about Na’Ama’s story and wanted to meet the little girl in person and support the cause.


Na’Ama’s brother suffers from Angelman Syndrome. The condition – which affects approximately one in 15,000 children – impacts speech, mobility, and can cause frequent seizures.

As she told CTV, Na’ama hopes her efforts will mean that one day “all the Angelman kids will be able to talk and not have seizures and epilepsy.”

Na’Ama’s no stranger to the lemonade stand game and this isn’t the first time she’s set up shop. Since she started her lemonade stand a year and a half ago, she’s raised more than $60,000 for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics.

“I used to do old little stands like this when I was little and I’d just spend the profits on lollies at the corner store so I’m glad she is doing something far more noble with the cause,” Robbie told CTV.

Thanks to Na’Ama’s fundraising initiatives, several clinical trials are in place, and a research chair in her name has been dedicated to finding a cure for Angelman Syndrome.

And she’s six.

So, yeah, maybe that didn’t help your Monday cause after all.
