We are two teenage girls who are spending our summer collecting donations of Dawn to send to the Gulf. We have lined up a rescue organization to send it to, a freight company to take a tractor trailer filled to them, and have received nationwide media coverage. What started out to be what we thought would be a local collection has blossomed nationwide.

We have contacted DAWN (P&G) several with requests ranging from recognizing our efforts (which are increasing their profits SUBSTANTIALLY) or matching our contribution. All we get back is automated messages.

Please spread the word and message our Facebook page is sending - Help Us Help The Gulf Wildlife. And P&G, we still challenge you to match our collection!!!/group.php?gid=127425097280731
