In my last post, I put my birthday wish out to the world, and boy let me tell you – the world answered! I have been swamped over the last month with a combination of client work and also volunteer efforts that are culminating in the Spirit of the Gulf Coast initiative, which begins with a documentary expedition down to the Gulf Coast this weekend. I have been working on this for a couple of months, and the more I talk with people about it, the more people want to get involved. It has been an honor to be a part of this work and to shine a light on the local coastal communities that have been impacted so severely as a result of the BP oil spill.
Please check out the website we created for the initiative and consider making a PayPal donation if this resonates with you. The video below describes how we are using the donations and our purpose for the trip.
Thanks for allowing me to share this with you. It has taken a lot of energy to bring it to this point, but the team is very excited to go down to the coast and conduct this expedition this coming weekend. We’ll be updating the Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube accounts in real-time while we are there, and will be doing daily blog recaps as well. Please consider following along.
Thanks again for being here, and I hope you enjoy the work.
