8-Year-Old’s Lemonade Stand Makes A Stand Against Slavery [Video]
8-year-old Vivienne Harr has started a lemonade stand to combat human trafficking. The California girl wants to raise $150,000 for the nonprofit group Not For Sale, which is fighting to end slavery across the globe.
Harr began her stand in June and has vowed to sit at it “every day – rain or shine” until she reaches her goal so Not For Sale can “re-abolish slavery.” One hundred percent of the profits from Make A Stand Lemonade will go to Not For Sale.
Harr is taking her message even further, utilizing a Twitter account and website for Make A Stand Lemonade. She also has a Fundly page, where she has reached 10 percent of her goal with donations adding up to $15,476 at the time of this writing.
With help from her father, Harr has been posting updates about her fundraising goal and reaching out to those who have helped by either donating or spreading the word about the stand.
Harr posted on her website today:
“i have been alive 8 years and i have never seen a day like yesterday.
