Description:

Talented artiste Olivia Pedrick sold her first painting at the ripe old age of eight. But she didn’t begin marketing them in earnest until 2011, when her mother set up a Facebook page so a few family members and friends could buy the works. Each piece features an animal — whether it be a cat, dog, turtle, or unicorn — which is appropriate, since Pedrick donates all the money she makes to local shelters. Now 11 years old, she’s completed 300 paintings, donated a total of $8,000 to 30 organizations, and amassed a Facebook following of nearly 4,000 fans. And paintings aren’t all she does: She’s organized dog washes and bake sales, and (with mom’s help) started an all-kids volunteer group in her town. Way to go, Miss Pedrick!
