ATLANTA - Two girls spent Sunday afternoon selling preschool artwork near their Piedmont Heights home to help relief efforts in Japan.

Tuesday Muse, 6, came up with the idea after seeing the destruction on TV.

"I saw people getting hurt and drowning," she said.

Tuesday's mother said they talked about setting up a lemonade stand or selling cookies to raise money.

"Then I asked if there was something special that she could so, since I would be the one making cookies or lemonade," Keely Muse said. "That's when she told me, 'I'm a really good artist.'"

Muse said her daughter began going through drawers to find artwork from her preschool days.

"She found a lot," Muse said. "She was very generous."

Tuesday's friend, Stella, helped sell the art on Sunday. Together, the girls raised $264, which they will donate to the American Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan.
