[FAR New York]: Oil Spill in the Gulf.

June 23, 2010

The Fund for Armenian Relief wishes to express its concern for the unspeakable tragedy of the Gulf of Mexico BP oil spill. As an organization that aims to bring hope and opportunity and an organization that was founded in the wake of disaster, all of us at FAR are deeply concerned about the impact this disaster is having on the communities in the Gulf and on our planet, economically as well as environmentally.

We urge you to consider supporting some of the most reputable environmental organizations (in no particular order) and their efforts to mitigate the destruction of the oil spill.
National Wildlife Federation
International Bird Rescue Research Center
American Bird Conservancy
Greater New Orleans Foundation
Gulf Restoration Network
Nature Conservancy
