Willie & Lu Contributions: The Nitty Gritty

Up to the MInute with Willie & Lu

The BP Oil Catastrophe is out of our hands.  That much is clear. But there are dozens of non-profit (and, I suppose, for-profit) agencies doing everything within their power to limit and repair the devastation.  The Huffinton Post has a great article (that's being updated continually) that includes details about The Disaster, the organizations mentioned above, and ways that we can help:

Check it out.

To make room for more moans and groans like these, we're relocating our current Donations statement here, just so it has someplace to stay.  A previous post has more details about the first quarter donations.

>> Willie & Lu is committed to contributing at least 20% of our proceeds to humanitarian and environmental charities. For the first quarter of this year, we donated to agencies providing disaster relief in Haiti, Chile, and China: The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, and Habitat for Humanity. For information about these organizations and details of our donations, please visit our blog: www.willieandlu.blogspot Because every day SHOULD be Earth Day, our donations in the second quarter of the year will be given to environmental/animal groups. April's recipient of $20 is the Nobel Prize winning Nature Conservancy, "the leading conservation organization working around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people." Go to for more information. Here's a bit about our May recipient, Conservation International: ( "Through science, policy and field work, we're applying smart solutions to protect the resources that we all depend on. We help communities, countries and societies protect tropical forests, lush grasslands, rivers, wetlands, abundant lakes and the sea. Only through properly valuing the essential services these ecosystems provide can we create a sustainable development path that will benefit all people for generations to come." < (*) \|/ < (*) /|\
