FAIRFAX, California (June 3, 2013) – The story of a 9-year-old girl’s lemonade stand against child slavery is the subject of a new documentary in production called #standwithme by Stillmotion Originals (http://www.stillmotion.ca) of Portland, Oregon.
Last year 8-year-old Vivienne Harr of Fairfax, California saw a photo that changed her life, two boys her own age in Nepal carrying granite slabs strapped to their heads and backs, holding hands to comfort eachother. #standwithme follows Vivienne’s awakening to child slavery, and her decision to free those boys and others like him by raising donations through a lemonade stand. With a little help from her family and father in social media, Vivienne started selling lemonade every day, rain or shine with a social purpose business model allowing customers to “pay what’s in their heart.” After 173 days she met her goal of raising enough funds to free 500 children from slavery.
