  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.
