You thought Jaws was scary?

Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water, a new threat has emerged and now our livelihood is in serious jeopardy.

The images of the wildlife that have been burdened with the initial wave of crude oil are devastating and heart-wrenching.

It has left me feeling more and more helpless- I encourage everyone to do their part. The Better Business Bureau has developed a tool on their site that helps confirm the legitimacy of a charity. Use it and be generous.

Here are a few charities that have a positive track record of success:

While our dependence on oil may be the root and we didn't directly cause the oil spill, it's not going to clean itself, and entire species of wildlife shouldn't be destroyed.

  1. I would also like to add that several years ago, BP got out of the retail business and sold their gas stations to individual owner operators.

    These Mom and Pop stations are being punished for the acts of BP. It doesn't 'punish' BP to avoid these stations.

    I feel sorry for them too, as they are innocent victims as well.

    Great Blog Post.

    Thanks for the kind words!
