Green Day encourages fans to help Gulf Residents
GREEN DAY WANT TO HELP THE GULF
Thank you Green Day for wanting a blue/green gulf back — The California trio is encouraging their fans to assist by donating to the NRDC. Â Here’s the article from GreenDay.com
Text GULFSOS to 25383 to give $5 to NRDCâ€™s Gulf Coast Recovery Fund
NRDC has set up a special Gulf Coast Recovery Fund that provides an easy way for you to give to local organizations working on the frontlines to help people, wildlife and fragile ecosystems recover from the Gulf oil spill, the worst environmental disaster of our time. Every dollar given to our Fund will go directly — via emergency grants — to Gulf Coast non-profit groups.
At the same time, NRDC has had a rapid-response team on the ground in the Gulf for the past month — documenting the environmental impacts of the oil spill, advocating for local communities, and getting important stories to thousands of news outlets. Dozens of NRDC attorneys and scientists are working around the clock to hold BP accountable for the damage it is causing. And weâ€™re working to make sure the Obama Administration is doing everything possible to defend our coastal waters from more disasters at the hands of Big Oil. We will fight in court, in federal agencies, and in Congress to win tough new safeguards that will rein in an oil industry that has been running amok.
