Olivia's Birds: Saving the Gulf by Olivia Bouler
Olivia Bouler — a young bird lover who was worried about the effects of the 2011 Gulf oil spill — took action in an awe-inspiring way. She wrote a letter to Audubon saying she was "11 years old and willing to help," and included her beautiful paintings of birds. Audubon, in turn, published the artwork and interesting bird facts in Olivia's Birds, which raised more than $175,000 for the oil spill cleanup. How cool is that?!
