The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2010

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Dec 31, 2010

The catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico -- already the size of Delaware and growing daily--will likely impact the coastline and Gulf communities from Texas to Florida.

Experts fear that the spill will result in an environmental disaster. It threatens the fragile Gulf coastline and wetlands vital to the region's economy, the seafood industry, thousands of species of wildlife, and the region that forms the first line of defense to storms and hurricanes. There have been a variety of ongoing efforts to stem the flow of oil at the wellhead. Crews have been working to protect hundreds of miles of beaches, wetlands and estuaries along the northern Gulf coast, using skimmer ships, floating containment booms, anchored barriers, and sand-filled barricades along shorelines.

The Charities below are on the front lines, doing incredibly hard work on our behalf. Please donate what you can and get at least 5 friends to donate too. And while the donations are important, the support you show and the awareness you help spread are just as valuable.
