They may play less than altruistic characters in Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Suicide Squad” film, but that of course didn’t stop actors Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney from paying a visit to a very unique charity in Toronto on Sunday afternoon. As reported by CTV news, Robbie and Courtney — also known as Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang — stopped by six-year-old Na’Ama Uzan’s lemonade stand, which the young entrepreneur started in order to raise money for her older brother, who suffers from Angelman Syndrome.
“We heard about Na’Ama’s story and what she was doing for her brother Nadav and I just think it’s so inspiring,” Courtney told CTV News. “It just shows that there’s there is no act too small when you are talking about making a difference.”
Robbie said that she used to run her own stand, similar to Na’Ama’s. “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.”
Nadav’s condition affects speech and mobility in addition to causing seizures. Na’Ama’s endeavor has been a big success, even before getting a visit from the two notable actors. In year and a half since she started her lemonade stand, Na’Ama has raised over $60,000 for the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics.
Na’Ama said she started the lemonade stand so that hopefully one day “all the Angelman kids will be able to talk, not have seizures and epilepsy.”
