Amazing Ideas: Olivia Bouler and the Pelicans

11-year-old Olivia Bouler had loved birds since the age of four, so when she found out about an environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 she knew she needed to do something.
[1] A terrible accident had caused a lot of oil to spill into the sea. Some of the animals that suffered most were sea birds, such as brown pelicans. If these birds get only a little bit of the sticky oil onto their feathers, they
can't fly; and most of the pelicans in the Gulf of Mexico had been covered in oil. It seemed to be a hopeless situation.

[2] However Olivia really wanted to do something to help and she had an idea. She was good at drawing birds and she thought that if she started selling pictures, she could donate the profits to an organisation that was
trying to rescue the helpless pelicans. She wrote a letter to the organisation and asked for their permission to help. Then she set up a page on a social networking site to raise money by selling her drawings.

[3] A big internet company saw her page and approached her, offering her a profile on their website. She agreed, and thousands of people started buying her pictures and donating generously to save the birds
affected by the disaster. She managed to raise $200,000 and the members of the organisation she donated it to were very grateful.

[4] In a video she posted on the internet, Olivia explained how at first she thought the project would raise maybe $500, but it just kept getting bigger and bigger. She left viewers with an important message, saying:
"Kids can do it. Kids can change the world, and my story just proves it. If I can, you can – anybody can."


1 At first it seemed that the birds which were affected by the oil
spill were ____ .
A not in great danger
B in such great danger they couldn't be saved
C able to help themselves

2 Olivia's idea was to ____ .
A donate her allowance to the rescuers
B write letters to companies asking for money to help rescuers
C use a talent to raise money for the rescuers

3 After Olivia got a profile on a famous website, people started ____ .
A volunteering
B giving lots of money
C setting up charities

4 Olivia had originally expected ____ than she actually did.
A to collect less money
B to sell more pictures
C to rescue more birds

5 The most important point in paragraph [2] is that Olivia ____ .
A wrote a letter to the rescue organisation
B thought of a way to raise money for the rescue
C was good at drawing

6 The most important point in paragraph [3] is that ____ .
A Olivia collected $200,000
B the organisation was grateful for the money
C an internet company approached Olivia

7 The most important point in paragraph [4] is that Olivia ____ .
A posted a video on the net
B thought she'd be lucky to raise $500
C says that anybody can make a difference in the world

[1] A terrible accident had caused a lot of oil to spill into the sea. Some of the animals that suffered most were sea birds, such as brown pelicans. If these birds get only a little bit of the sticky oil onto their feathers, they
can't fly; and most of the pelicans in the Gulf of Mexico had been covered in oil. It seemed to be a hopeless situation.

[2] However Olivia really wanted to do something to help and she had an idea. She was good at drawing birds and she thought that if she started selling pictures, she could donate the profits to an organisation that was
trying to rescue the helpless pelicans. She wrote a letter to the organisation and asked for their permission to help. Then she set up a page on a social networking site to raise money by selling her drawings.

[3] A big internet company saw her page and approached her, offering her a profile on their website. She agreed, and thousands of people started buying her pictures and donating generously to save the birds
affected by the disaster. She managed to raise $200,000 and the members of the organisation she donated it to were very grateful.

[4] In a video she posted on the internet, Olivia explained how at first she thought the project would raise maybe $500, but it just kept getting bigger and bigger. She left viewers with an important message, saying:
"Kids can do it. Kids can change the world, and my story just proves it. If I can, you can – anybody can."
