A really cool 4th grader from Hoboken, NJ has been worried about the people and animals due the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and has started a relief effort which is really worth checking out. I think we should contact all of our local barbers and help this individual out!!
Check out his page on the link above and email him… Let’s get this process started ASAP! He’s not even asking for money!!
Excerpt from his page:
“I am worried about the people, animals, and sea creatures that live along the coast, especially the sea turtles. The sea turtles are about to start their nesting season so they have to return to shore to lay their eggs and after their eggs hatch, the baby turtles must make their way back to the ocean. Because of the oil spill, the turtles will have a hard time. There is something we can all do to help: donate your hair to help clean the oil spill. Human and animal hair of any length can be used by the organization Matter of Trust  to make a special kind of mat that absorbs the oil. I have already asked some local business, including the dog groomers at Fuzzybutz to donate the hair they collect. If you get a haircut and want to donate some clean hair, you can e-mail me at savetheseaturtles2010@gmail.com.”
