CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Two young sisters have a desire for painting and making art come alive.

With their talents, they decided to have an art sale and raise some money and with that money, the girls didn't buy new toys or games.

They decided to donate all their hard-earned cash to the Coastal Bend Food Bank.

We spoke to their mother who says she is extremely proud of these girls for having big hearts while doing what they can to fight hunger at the young ages of seven and nine.

Abigail and Julia Humes say their favorite pastime is to see their masterpieces take their first breath.

The two had the idea that their artwork can help fight hunger.

The duo put their heads together and made drawings and painted seashells all by hand.

These young innovators sold their art and donated all their earnings to the Coastal Bend Food Bank.

They raised $275 and these girls say they just want to help area families have a meal.

“It also makes me feel good because we raised so much money that’s going to make so many meals because every dollar gets three meals,” says Abigail Humes.

While doing what they love these sisters are making an impact in the community, proving that age does not matter.

“Well anyone can do it no matter how old you are, and you can use your talents in a good way like if you're really good at making art like us you can do that,” says Humes.

This is the 4th year the sisters have donated to the Coastal Bend Food Bank.
