Author and activist Riki Ott is helping Global Green USA raise money for the families and communities affected by the Gulf Oil Spill. She has made her book “Not One Drop: Betrayal and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill” available as an e-book and is asking that people donate to Global Green in exchange for downloading this fascinating read.
Note from the Author Riki Ott: “Most importantly, my publisher, Chelsea Green, and I are giving these e-books away for free in hopes that you will donate $1, $5, $10 or more to Global Green USA, an environmental non-profit with a mission of reconnecting humanity to the environment in order to create a more secure & sustainable future. Global Green opened a New Orleans office almost 5 years ago, in response to Hurricane Katrina, and is leading the green rebuilding of the city by creating healthy green schools, homes and communities that save money, improve health and help fight global warming.
In response to the Gulf oil spill, Global Green is co-chairing the local Green Collaborative — a network of 65 organizations working to build a strong green economy in Louisiana — to assess the greatest needs to help in the clean up, and to support those families devastated by the spill. Funds will go toward delivering healthy food and support for the fishermen and families whose lives depend on a thriving coastal economy.
If 100,000 people download and give even $1, we’ll be able to raise a significant amount for the relief efforts. At $10/download, that’s a million dollars! Just hit the “Donate Now” button beside Not One Drop on Scribd. Funds will go toward mitigating social trauma from the spill, because I remember how much the Exxon Valdez hurt my town, Cordova.”
