How you can help with the oil spill

On a more serious note, I'm sure you've had at least one horrified eye on the Oil spill in the Gulf, as we all have these last couple weeks.
While BP has pledged to pay all legitimate claims made in relation to the oil spill, the groups working in the area need immediate support. Here's a list of some of the groups working on the oil spill that get three- and four-star ratings from

National Audubon Society, (always one of my favorites) is working to aid birds and habitat affected by the spill.
National Wildlife Federation, is responding to the spill.
Greater New Orleans Foundation, is assisting locally.
Matter of Trust is accepting donations of hair, fur and nylons, which are used to aid in the oil response.

Red Prairie Press will be doing our part by donating 30% of our weekend sales to the National Audubon Society. How will you pitch in?

In general, all organizations are encouraging people NOT to travel to volunteer.
