Do you want to make a difference for the Gulf region communities affected by the oil spill, but don’t know how?
Both Gulf Coast Benefit and Social Media Club have decided to sponsor Citizen Effect’s CitizenGulf project. The effort has become a National Day of Action on August 25th, in alignment with the week of the fifth anniversary of Katrina. You can host your own local benefit!
The benefit — to be promoted by Gulf Coast Benefit — will help fishing families find a new, more sustainable future by providing education resources for their children. Catholic Charities of New Orleans is the beneficiary of all CitizenGulf National Day of Action donations. Citizen Effect will send 100% of donations, less credit card fees, directly to Catholic Charities to support education programs for fishing families.
Your Event Means a Summer Night of Jazz, Blues, Zydeco, and More
If you want to host an event, we are suggesting a meet-up at places that can accommodate the following: People, hurricanes, New Orleans themed music (i.e. jazz, blues, zydeco) and a local green or environmental expert who can say a few things about the oil spill’s impact on the marine environment and the Gulf Coast economies associated with it. Registration will be $10.
The CitizenGulf team will set up your event page to ensure all proceeds go directly to the charities, with no worries about pass through fees. To sign up for your own event click here. We hope your Social Media Club will join us in time for a national roll-out of host cities on August 1.
