Make A Stand Lemonade Launched In Retail

One of my favorite stories from my new book, Crowdfunding for Social Good is about 9-year-old Vivienne Harr who decided that she would end child slavery in her lifetime.

You can read my latest Forbes post about her here.

Vivienne originally started raising money with a lemonade stand, which she operated every day for a year! From the stand, she was able to raise over $100,000 to donate to organizations that fight trafficking and slavery.

Then she turned to crowdfunding where she raised nearly half-a-million dollars using

Some of that money was used to launch a her retail brand of lemonade, Make A Stand Lemonade, with profits going to the fight against child slavery.

The video posted above is Vivienne seeing her lemonade on retail shelves for the first time. 

Congratulations Vivienne!
