Mindful : October 2013
When Vivienne Harr was eight, her parents showed her a photo of two young boys in Nepal carrying large rocks strapped to their backs. “I didn’t even know slaver y existed before I saw that photo,” says Vivienne, now nine. From that point on, she and her family decided they would dedicate themselves to the cause of ending child slaver y. They star ted last summer with a single lemonade stand, but by harnessing the power of social media, they raised more than $100,000 in six months for Not For Sale, a nonprofit aimed at halting human trafficking. To date, $1 million has been raised to expand into bottling their “lemon-aid.” And Make a Stand Inc., the “ for-profit social purpose company,” will donate half the profits to organizations working to eliminate slaver y. “It’s Vivienne’s dream to end slavery within her lifetime,” her mom, Alexandra Harr, told Mindful. Others have noticed her daughter’s effor ts, too— Vivienne spoke at Wisdom 2.0 in Februar y, a conference that at tracts leaders in technol- ogy and social change, was recently filmed for a documen- tar y, and has been invited to visit the White House. Vivienne attends Marin Mindfulness, a cooperative in Marin County, California, that Children Helping Children teaches mindfulness to teach- ers, parents, children, and teenagers. Children take on ser vice projects such as baking cookies to raise money for an orphanage, growing vegeta- bles for a food bank, and mak- ing signs to encourage the use of bicycles. Children often team up to suppor t one another, practicing mindfulness in the process and experiencing how it feels to ser ve others and take positive action. Helping children feel they are par t of the solu- tion to the world’s problems can keep them from feeling over whelmed, says Lesley Grant, founder and director of Marin Mindfulness. “A lot of jadedness comes from being exposed to so much without having a way to help. Giving them a way to respond, in a way that suits their development, is incredibly healing for them.” And Vivienne agrees. “I just feel like you don’t have to be someone big to help. You can be anyone—like me.” ● To learn more about Vivienne Harr and her fundraising, go to mindful.org/lemonaid now 14 mindful October 2013 Illustration by Gavin Potenza
