After seeing a photo of two enslaved boys her age and learning that "slavery did not end with Abraham Lincoln"—then 8-year-old Vivienne Harr said: “Compassion is not compassion without action. We need to do something.”
So, since children have done since time immemorial, she went with “the only business experience I had”: a lemonade stand. But, little Vivienne had a big vision. She wanted to raise $100,000. She "made a stand" at her lemonade stand for 365 days straight, rain or shine, to “end child slavery.” The world stood with her.
On day #173, Mayor Michael Bloomberg welcomed Vivienne to Times Square to sell her famous lemonade. It was there that she reached her goal—donating $101,320 to Not For Sale, a leading anti-slavery organization. She won "Crowdfunding Campaign of the Year."
