Mother Earth Bracelet and links on how to help with the oil disaster.

Over the last several weeks I have been heart sick over the B.P. Oil disaster.  Our ocean is being poisoned, and all of the animals, the marshes, the beaches, and the estuaries are being poisoned with it.

It's such a helpless feeling to see news everyday of the dying birds, fish and turtles.  Entire Towns are being decimated by the economic impact of the oil spill.  I truly fear this is the death knell of a dying planet.

I usually try to keep this blog upbeat and to focus on positive things in this world.  So I am listing below several ways you can help out, and please say a prayer for Mother Earth.

Info on how to help:

National Wildlife Federation  has a very helpful site on how to help your kids cope with the disaster and how to talk with them about it.  It also has donation and volunteer information.  The NWF is a trusted organization that has a history of helping save animals and habitat.

Fox News has an excellent article listing a dozen organizations to that are asking for help in the clean up and rescue effort.  These groups mostly have direct involvement in the areas being affected.

The United Way has set up a special fund for recovery of the gulf from the oil spill.
"The United Way Gulf Recovery Fund will provide emergency assistance, such as help with food, rent and utilities, and support long-term recovery efforts to rebuild lives devastated by the disaster by addressing educational, financial and health-related challenges."

The Nature Conservancy has an option where you can direct your funds to help with the clean up.

This article by William Graff lists some great links as well, including Audubon.
