Brother, Sister Help Birds Hurt by Oil Spill

Ad Feedback

Two Florida siblings are turning lemons into lemonade to rescue some feathered friends in the Gulf of Mexico.

Nine-year-old Kaitlyn Wagner and her younger brother Jonathan are making old fashioned lemonade to raise money to help clean the birds affected by the oil spill.

Anyone who makes a donation gets a free glass of lemonade. Their parents say the images on television hit a nerve for their children.

"The kids were just devastated by what they were seeing with the birds that were suffering," Scott Wagner said.

"They would be covered in oil all the time. If people didn't raise money, then they would still be covered in oil for a long time," Jonathan said.

"I don't want to sit here and look at them suffer so we came up with that, and we'll raise money and give it to them and they can, some can live," Kaitlyn said.

The kids drew pictures of the birds and are giving them to some of their biggest donors.
