gulf oil spill

I few days ago, I asked a question on Twitter and Facebook.  How can I help with the gulf oil spill cleanup effort?  I was surprised that few people offered suggestions of how to help.   I don’t have a lot of resources at my disposal and I live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland so I won’t be travelling there, but i want to do my part.

A friend of mine, Randy, directed me to a USA Today article that was quite helpful.  Although I found it amusing that it was an article in the “Kindness” area of their news stories. Helping with the cleanup effort hardly seems like an act of “kindness” to me.  There are several ways to help, but the National Wildlife Federation seems to me to have a very comprehensive approach to helping this situation  You can find all kinds of news updates, videos, etc. on their website. Donations can be made to the National Wildlife Federation here. You can also find them on Facebook or on Twitter.

I don’t know a whole lot about organizations like the NWF or really any environmental groups. But, with the government and business sectors seemingly doing very little to affect this situation, I believe it is vital to our environment, economy, etc. to do SOMETHING to help personally.  I hope you will too.
