The Suicide Squad Cast Were IRL Heroes At This Little Girl’s Charity Lemonade Stand
Suicide Squad might be the story of a ragtag group of violent anti-heroes, but in real life, Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney are more likely to help a little girl raise money for her brother’s illness than rob a bank with the Joker, or assassinate someone with a boomerang.
Robbie and Courtney hit up six-year-old Na’ama Uzan’s lemonade stand in Toronto over the weekend, after hearing about the little girl’s noble cause: instead of saving up those quarters for movie tickets or video games, she’s raising money for Angelman Syndrome, in support of her brother Nadav. The disease affects speech and mobility and can cause frequent seizures, and according to CP24, Na’ama has already raised more than $60,000 for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics—and that’s without the dollar she earned from the DC heroes.
“I heard about Na’ama’s story and what she was doing for her brother Nadav, and I just think it’s so inspiring,” Courtney said. “It just shows that there’s no act too small when you’re talking about making a difference.”
“I used to do all kinds of little stands like this when I was little,” Robbie added. “I just spent the profits on like, lollies at the corner store.”
