While most young kids are looking forward to playing with friends or going to birthday parties, this 7-year-old is working to help others. Maia Bastianelli is an artist who is using her artwork to raise money for children with disabilities. "Maia is extremely giving and has such a huge heart", said Mikki Doling, Maia's Grandmother.

Grandma Mikki has been involved with Daystar, a pediatric care/respite center for children with various health concerns for many years. It is the only organization that helps transition kids with special healthcare needs from hospital to home. "When I heard about what my Grandma was doing, I wanted to do something to help them too," proclaimed Maia.

With a goal of raising $10,000, Maia has been diligently creating and selling her artwork to help the Daystar Kids. Way to go, Maia!!
