The attendees of TechCrunch Disrupt have the chance to help the relief effort relief effort in the Gulf of Mexico by making a donation through this page! As you know, the area has been devastated by a massive oil leak, which is affecting the marine and coastal habitat. The money I raise will go to Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge (ECWR), a non profit organization caring for animals who have been affected by this disaster.
The mission of the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge (ECWR) is education, conservation and rehabilitation for the welfare of Florida’s natural fauna.
Over the past 13 years, the ECWR has cared for thousands of animals in need of help – from stranded dolphins to injured eagles to orphaned foxes.
