Teenagers Aiding the Gulf

Teenagers Care is raising money for affected animals.

Teenager Matt Pierce of Bradenton, Fla., started a non-profit to raise money for animals affected by the oil spill in the Gulf. Pierce, 17 and a senior in high school, was moved by the disaster and the deep effects it is having on wildlife. He created Teenagers Care, an organization comprised of young people trying to raise money through selling t-shirts, which Pierce designed himself, and other techniques such as lemonade stands. In only two weeks, the group raised $5,000, and Pierce has a goal to raise $100,000 to help wildlife affected by the spill. Pierce said, “I wanted to show the world that teenagers care about their world just as much as adults do.”
