I say “Your Story,” because this story is about you, me…all of us. Slavery affects us all.
I am Vivienne. I am 8 years old. I am MAKING A STAND.
A lemonade stand. And, a stand against slavery.
Since June 25, I have been setting up my lemonade stand every day – rain or shine. I will do this until I raise $150,000 for Not For Sale. It will be hard, but that’s what “making a stand” means, right? It means doing something even if you think you can’t. Martin Luther King said: “The ultimate measure of a person is not where they STAND in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they STAND at times of challenge and controversy!” That guy knew how to MAKE A STAND!
this is my brother Turner. he is only two, but he is MAKING A STAND with me.
I am doing this because there are 30 million slaves in the world today. That’s why.
