Operation Squeegee - an SL exclusive fundraising effort to support recovery efforts from the ongoing gulf oil-spill. July 1st to 15th, 2010

Creators, DJs, Events, Bloggers, and Volunteers

Seeking contributors and volunteers to participate in an SL exclusive fundraising effort to support recovery efforts from the ongoing gulf oil-spill.

The event will run from July 1st - 15th, and will have lots of events and publicity associated with it, as well as a vendor merchandise area with donated items for sale!

Funds raised through Operation Squeegee will go to The National Wildlife Federation. Funds that are donated to the federation will support the following efforts:
  • Development and deployment of the National Wildlife Federation's Gulf Coast Surveillance Teams, a volunteer network that is being organized to monitor the coast for wildlife impacted by the oil spill. Beyond the initial surveillance needed, this effort will then shift to long term volunteer restoration programs.
  • Restoration of vulnerable nesting and breeding grounds, as well as other delicate ecosystems found throughout the Gulf Coast for water birds, sea turtles and other animals.
  • Public education about the oil spill and its impacts on wildlife, including our online efforts at and informing the press and others about the impacts the oil spill is having on coastal communities and wildlife.
  • Policy work at the national and state level to support restoration of habitat in the Gulf Coast and better protection of our waters and coastlines.
You can read more about their efforts on thier website!
