Thirteen-year-old Juliana Otwell has for the last two years — and with great success — coordinated and produced a talent show for international crises needs.
In 2011, $600 was raised for the victims of the horrific tsunami in Japan. In 2012, another $600 was raised for Compassion International and children were “adopted” by individuals as well. This year all the proceeds from an upcoming Juliana-produced talent show will go to the Oklahoma tornado victims.
