At the age of eight, Vivienne Harr made headlines by raising more than $100,000 to fight child slavery with her traveling lemonade stand. She is the first girl in American history to bottle her lemonade-stand lemonade. Make a Stand Lemon-aid is available in stores and online.
Vivienne has become the youngest person to give a TEDx talk, and has been listed among Town & Country‘s “50 Most Influential Philanthropists in America.” Entrepreneur voted her one of “15 female entrepreneurs to watch in 2015.”
Of their 230 million users, including A-list celebrities and heads of state, Twitter chose Vivienne to ring the bell at their IPO on the New York Stock Exchange because “she represents what one person can do in the world."
This year, Vivienne is the Chief Inspiration Officer for an exciting new project called STAND, which aims to be the first social media platform designed to make social giving easy and effective. By creating a space for people to “connect and engage around values and causes important to them,” Vivienne and the team hope to empower more people, whatever their age, to put their “compassion into action.” For an 11-year-old, Harr is a huge reminder how one person really can make a difference.
