Vivienne Harr

After seeing a photo of two enslaved boys her age and learning that "slavery did not end with Abraham Lincoln," 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. [+]
