the oil spill: what you CAN do

Our feeling of powerlessness over the continuing oil spill in the Gulf Coast has made us feel just terrible… Until today, when the ever-wonderful Manhattan User’s Guide has published a long list of actions you can take in response to the Gulf Coast Oil Spill “large and small, short- and longterm”,  from participating in a Hands-Across-The-Sand Protest to texting WILDLIFE to 20222 to make a $10 donation to the National Wildlife Federation (NWF says 97% of the donation will go to Gulf region recovery efforts), to supplying life vests needed by the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Volunteer Program. Check out the whole list here.
