Teen Helps Gulf Wildlife

Teenager helps animal victims of oil spill.

Coins for the Coast, started by 13-year-old Meagan Bethel from Tuscan, Arizona, has collected more than $2,000 for wildlife in the Gulf. Bethel started collecting donations in the form of pocket change after feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of the oil spill and its effect on the animals and the environment. The original goal was $500, but Bethel has seen donations come in from all over, including from one man who handed over his entire unopened piggy bank. “He just never had the heart to break it open. When we did it for him, it had over $300 in it for the animals,” said Bethel.
