Shooting on the Suicide Squad wrapped up this weekend in Toronto. Now there’s been no shortage of news coming off of the Suicide Squad set whether its fans on social media catching sightings of the Joker-mobile, or the film’s stars being captured out and about in the city out of costume, but with shooting now at an end, it might seem now an occasion for the valued Hollywood tradition of the over-the-top, debauched wrap party. What you weren’t expecting though was Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang stopping by a quiet Toronto street for a nice glass of homemade lemonade. It was quite the surprise for the little girl trying to raise money for charity with her stand too.

First of all, let’s say that it’s nice to see a lemonade story that isn’t about the cops or by-law enforcement shutting it down due to “safety” or “licensing” issues. This is a good news story. A six-year-old named Na’Ama Uzan has run her lemonade stand for a year-and-a-half now, and all $64,000 of the money made so far has gone to FAST, or the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics. Angelman Syndrome is a genetic disorder affects mental development and the nervous system, and there is currently no treatment or cure for it. Na’Ama’s older brother suffers from the syndrome.

Enter two members of the Suicide Squad, Jai Courtney who plays Captain Boomerang and Margot Robbie who plays Harley Quinn in the upcoming super-villain team-up film. “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.”

“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,” added Robbie.

Suicide Squad will be in theaters everywhere next summer.
