I have been inspired to take action in the wake of the terrible tragedy down in the Gulf of Mexico, and I only want one thing for my birthday – to continue to build on the positive energy that has come as a result of the initial idea for a relief trip and to raise money for the main expedition later in August. My intention is to bring together a crew to visit the region and document the stories of the people and the wildlife that have been affected and bring these experiences back to Atlanta so they can be shared at an event in early September. This event will be a platform for bringing about positive discussion and actionable steps we can all take to reduce our collective dependence on oil.
We are still making preparations and ironing out specifics for the expedition and event, but I wanted to take this opportunity to put my wish out there so that people that want to contribute may do so easily here on my site. Donations will be used to cover expenses involved with a return trip to the region, preparing the content for the public event, and putting the material on a dedicated website for distribution throughout the world.
I appreciate all the support that people have shown throughout this process. I take this very seriously and will do everything I can to help bring about positive changes in light of this terrible disaster. If you would like to get involved in the expedition, please reach out to me directly. Or if you would prefer to make a donation, please click below. Thank you so much!
