An 8-year-old girl has vowed to fight against human trafficking — one lemonade at a time.

Vivienne Harr has set up a traveling homemade lemonade stand to raise $150,000 for Not For Sale, a non-profit corporation working to end slavery across the world.

“There are kids just my age who don’t get to have summers or sell lemonade or enjoy the sunshine,” Harr said in a statement. “They work all day with no hope. I want to give them hope.”

The 8-year-old has already raised more than $15,000 for the California-based group — and she has a massive social media following to boot.
