DANBURY — A local 10-year-old was featured on “Good Morning America” for her charity that has sent art kits to children across the country.

Chelsea Phaire started Chelsea’s Charity after asking people to donate art supplies in lieu of gifts for her 10th birthday. Since then, she has created more than 2,500 kits for kids in schools, foster care and homeless shelters, “Good Morning America” reports.

She told Hearst Connecticut Media in November that art is her therapy and that she wanted to spread that to children in need.

“Art is a start,” Chelsea said at the time. “Art is my super power. If you’re kind to someone, it can turn their life around. One small act of kindness could really impact something in someone’s life.”

She has also been featured on outlets such as ABC News and NBC News.
