Amazing Little Artist Helping the Gulf Coast

I saw this at Coastal Living and it absolutely amazed me! First of all how amazing this little girls drawings and painting were, and second that this little girl has a heart of gold!

Below is the article from Coastal Living:

Recently, the Audobon Society received a letter. It read, "I am a decent drawer, and I was wondering if I could sell some bird paintings and give the profits to your organization." The writer was 11-year-old Olivia Bouler, who has since raised more than $110,000 for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill relief with the support of AOL Artists.

To read more about this inspiring story on CNN.com, click here!

Watching the coverage of the oil spill is so frustrating, it's wonderful to read about someone so young who got productive and really made a difference. What about you? Does Olivia motivate you to get out there and do something in support of the Gulf?

-Perry Del Favero, Editorial Intern

You need to see her beautiful pictures for yourself and learn about her story. It is so heart-warming to see how children understand what is going on and open up their minds and their hearts to do whatever they can. Children don't think about who's at fault and play the blame game, they see what is going on and the only thing that is on their minds is helping!

What a great story and I would love to learn more about others stories. If you have other great inspiration stories I would love to hear about them!

You can help Olivia by visiting the cnn page and reading about making donations and receiving one of Olivia's prints.
