Artwork for Animals

An 11-year old offers her artwork and raises $175,000 for Gulf Coast birds.

One year ago this week, Olivia Bouler was devastated at the tragedy of the BP oil spill. The 11-year old New York native reached out to the National Audubon Society (NAS), offering one original watercolor illustration for each person who donated to the nonprofit’s relief efforts. Three weeks later, the NAS sold out of the 500 pieces of art Bouler created. One year later, Bouler’s work has raised more than $175,000 for the NAS. She has also published Olivia’s Birds: Saving the Gulf, a book filled with original illustrations, facts, and photos of birds, with some proceeds supporting the NAS.
