This week marks the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. It's hard to believe it's been five years since New Orleans was devastated according to Wikipedia, by one of the five deadliest hurricanes in US history. Although Gulf Coast residents continue to re-build from Katrina, they still need help and maybe now more than ever, given the recent oil spill. And tomorrow night you can do just that by attending the CitizenGulf's National Day of Action in your city. Promoted by the Gulf Coast Benefit, the meet-up will help fishing families affected by the BP oil spill find a new, more sustainable future.


Here are 10 good reasons from Create The Good friend Geoff Livingston to join your local Social Media Club for a Gulf Coast Benefit on August 25.

Okay, so what are you waiting for? Sign up today, have fun tomorrow, and help families have a brighter future!
