Talk: Making a Stand

When Vivienne Harr was 8 years old she learned that there was child slavery in the world and was deeply troubled by it. So, she decided to make a lemonade stand every day until she raised $100,000 to end child slavery. Two years later, she and her family have started “Make A Stand Lemon-aid”, the first lemonade-stand in American history to become a commercial product. Make a Stand is a social impact brand that supports its 10-year-old founder's vision of a world where all 18 million enslaved children are free and safe. Join us to hear Vivienne's uplifting story, encouraging everyone to make stand for the causes that matter to us.
