In the Northern California city of Fairfax, Vivienne Harr has spent the last 57 days of her summer vacation turning lemons into lemonade — literally. She’s been selling the sweet, refreshing beverage with plans to use all her proceeds to fight human trafficking across the world.

As of Saturday afternoon, the young entrepreneur had already earned more than $30,000 at her makeshift business, which she appropriately dubbed Make-A-Stand! Lemonade: The Sweet Taste of Freedom.

She’s plans to keep selling lemonade until she raises $150,000, using only fair-trade lemons, of course.

“And it’s really hard to find fair-trade things. I mean, we’re buying fair-trade things because, I mean, you can’t be freeing slaves and having them to work harder for the cause that you’re trying to do to help them be free,” Harr told reporters.
