Who among us can look at that picture and not have your stomach turn? I am going to make this short and sweet because I want us all to get to work.
Craft Hope has started project 8. The idea is to send much needed washcloths to the cleanup area to be used to help clean up the birds and other wildlife. WE CAN HELP TOO!!!
They have partnered with several animal welfare/environmental organizations to help clean up dolphins, sea turtles, cranes, and other birds and mammals.
What to do:
They need sets of hand towels or washrags, preferably sets of ten or twenty. Approximate dimensions? 10 x 10 or 14 x 27. The link above has more information and an FAQ, but that's basically all you need to know. They should be cotton but don't need to be handmade or fancy.
Send them to:
c/o IMMS Oil Spill Relief
1700 East La Rua Street
Pensacola, FL 32501
A key here is that they need them NOW. The deadline is July 3rd. If you participate, please leave me a comment on this post that you did and what you sent. The spill has become the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. You can help; enlist your kids for a meaningful project to start off their Summer break.
Thanks everyone, and I hope you decide to join me. Jen
