FOWLER, Ind. (WLFI) -- One Fowler teen has created an unintentional business that's now booming.
Breanne Butler has been painting rocks and selling them since the start of the pandemic. Butler was born with spina-bifida, which affects her ability to walk. This business is going to help grant her 16th birthday wish.
"We do a lot of bugs, ladybugs, bumblebees, caterpillars those are some of our favorites to do," said Butler.
Butler discovered her love for painting rocks after looking for something fun to do during the pandemic, it's when she decided to start selling the rocks that things really took off.
"We started a Facebook page and then people just got interested and started telling other people," said Bulter.
Since March, Butler has raised around $3,000. She's planning to use the money to purchase a special vehicle for her 16th birthday.
"I'm going to be sixteen in October and I'm going to get my permit soon and then I'm going to need an accessible van," said Butler.
Her mother Jami Butler said even with medical-insurance the kind of car she'll need can still be costly.
"Ones that we've seen used that they're selling its probably a minimum of $30,000, so it's incredibly expensive," said Jami Butler.
In addition to the ADA-accessible van, the drivers-ed classes Breanne is required to take are also costly at about $5,200. The Butlers are happy with the support they've seen so far.
"People are very, very generous," said Jami. "Even people that haven't wanted rocks they've just sent donations knowing what the cause is for so truly a bit overwhelming actually."
The Butlers expect to purchase the ADA-accessible van later this year. You can donate and purchase Breanne's rocks here.
