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.

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?
