TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two eight-year-old Tulsa girls are helping victims in earthquake-ravaged Japan by painting.

Madelyn Todd and Mandy Redford created dozens of colorful paintings. They spent hours together at a sleepover painting.

Their moms came up with a creative idea for an art gallery where they could sell their work.

"We came up with the idea of them making art and selling it at our jazzersize center and so they made $175 already and they want to rebuild with that," Laura Casillas said. "If every little girl did that think of how much money would be raised."

The girls plan to donate 100 percent of their earnings to the American Red Cross.
