Change Makers Wanted!
By now you have heard about the inspiring adventure that our ISF Mobstirs Devon and Devin are taking on called Kids of the Gulf. We are so proud of these two world-changers (and the entire team!), but for their project to continue to grow they are going to need some more help. The KOTG Team is expanding, and we need to help them find passionate people for the job. Do you know someone that fits these descriptions? Even though these positions are not for kids, there are still many ways you can help Devon and Devin. You can use your power of spreading the word to help find the perfect people to join the KOTG team. A few easy things you can do are:
1. Tweet about it! Share the link to this article. Every time you share it, somebody new will see it!
2. Tell your parents about it! Are they or someone they know involved in making positive changes in our environment and for our creatures? Do they have the skills needed for this project?
3. Continue supporting Devon and Devin in any way that you can! Visit their official website HERE
About the project:
Kids of the Gulf is a documentary film that follows 8 year-old Devon and 14 year-old Devin as they help raise awareness of the dangers of oil dependence by sharing stories of how the BP oil spill affected kids like them who live in coastal communities and whose families rely on the Gulf waters for survival. Through the eyes of these remarkable change makers, we learn what life is like along the coast 2 years after the disaster and how this tragedy has permanently altered the lives of coastal residents. They embark on a quest to understand why this happened, who got hurt as a result, and what we can do to make sure we don't repeat the same mistakes again. Along the way, they learn about oil's role in local economies as well as clean, renewable, safer alternatives to oil that are available for use today.
