Only a 9-year-old would dream that a lemonade stand could free 500 enslaved children. What followed became so much bigger. After seeing a photo of two enslaved boys in Nepal, Vivienne Harr is moved to help in the only way she knows how: by setting up her lemonade stand.

As Vivienne's vision begins to show promise for something greater, her community stands with her — and she develops her own Social Purpose Company.
