11-Year-Old Girl Paints Watercolors Of Birds To Raise Money ($100,000!) For Animals In Gulf

June 15th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Last night, on the CBS Evening News, Steve Hartman told the touching and inspiring story of 11-year-old Olivia Bouler who decided to paint watercolors of birds as a way to raise money to support animal relief efforts on the Gulf Coast. Amazingly, she has raised $100,000 in donations from the paintings through an internet site. She is donating the money to the Audubon Society which plans to use it for animal rescue and to establish a new bird habitat in the Gulf. It’s a great story and Hartman, as usual, tells it beautifully. Olivia’s website can be found here.

    The world needs more people like OB; and less of BP’s ilk.
    To anybody who is heartened by her efforts – try to drive less – it’s the only way we’re going to improve things.
