This morning I assisted my friend and client, Jennifer Roth, in putting together a website which focuses on doing something about the BP oil spill. The mission of Clean the Gulf Now is stated as follows:
We are a grassroots, citizen-funded effort to clean up the Gulf of Mexico from BP’s oil catastrophe. Just like post-Katrina, we’ve grown weary and disheartened watching and waiting for our elected officials to step up and give us something more than lip service. Taking matters into our own hands, we have identified a safe, non-toxic product that will effectively clean the marshes, beaches and our waters from the oil. We are NOT promoting this product as the one and only solution, and are open to more and similar products. Our mission is to get the coast cleaned up NOW. If you have identified similar, nontoxic product, tell us about them!
If you’re interested in doing something about the BP oil spill, I encourage you to visit the site, educate yourself and consider donating to Clean the Gulf Now!
