Gulf Coast Seabird Rescue – Supply Request

Posted on Jun 22, 2010 in Environmental Conservation, OMG News, Sea Turtles

Dear Loyal Supporters,

We are in need of some assistance.  We are attempting to collect crucial supplies to help with the Seabird/Animal rescue in the gulf.  We are asking everyone to put their thinking caps on and see if you can come up with one or two organizations you might be affiliated with i.e. local church, boy/girl scout, homeowners association etc. which might be willing to work with us on coordinating a supply collection effort.  To make things easier, we prepared the following text which can be forwarded on to all your contacts, or cut and pasted in an e-mail;

Our organization “One More Generation” or OMG for short 😉 was founded by two students of the Fayette Montessori School here in Fayetteville, GA. The founders are Carter (9) and his Sister Olivia (7), who are both extremely passionate about animals and conservation.

They started their One More Generation organization in late 2009 and officially filed with the state of GA as a nonprofit late in January of this year. OMG was just granted their 501(c)(3) status by the IRS in May of this year.

They are currently working on several conservation initiatives but one which is closer to home has to do with the rescue of the many Seabird/Animal which are caught up in the horrible oil spill in the gulf.  They are currently taking donations (and collecting supplies) on their website to help purchase the following items;

Since OMG is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, you may obtain a tax deduction certificate if needed.  If you would prefer sending them any of these items, please send them to the following address;

One More Generation – P.O. Box 143627 – Fayetteville, GA 30214

OMG is interested in helping all organizations coordinate a Collections Program for theses supplies.  Just give them a call and they will do the rest.  Should you have a large amount of items to donate, you may also call them here locally (in the greater Atlanta area only) and they will arrange for pickup of the supplies (877-OMG-THANKS or 877-664-8426).

They are also interested in hearing if you have any other ideas that will help them collect the supplies, maybe by working with your local church as an example.  Just give them a call with the contact person and they will do the rest.

Thank you wholeheartedly for your consideration in the above referenced items

Carter and Olivia Ries
