As the devastating images from the latest Gulf oil spill began to criss-cross the Internet, the stark reality of the damages became visible to everyone. Questions like, "What have we done? How did this happen"? and "What can we do?" began to echo through many of our thoughts—I know this to be true for me anyway. The powerful thing is, great communities (like the one here at Mom It Forward) do find ways to help. A community like this one is proof that you can gather in thought, take action and transcend physical barriers to help make change. We may not all be able to physically lend support to the Gulf clean-up efforts, but there is proof that a lot of "little" actions can be amplified and add up to something much more powerful.

One organization that has clear ideas about how to help is Oceana, a nonprofit organization focused on protecting the world’s oceans. If you’d like to help support Oceana and its conservation efforts, the cool designers at The Heads of State have made it easy and rewarding.

Thanks for watching and thinking about how you can help. Even if it's just by spreading the word, it is helpful. The team at The Heads of State says it best: “We know this poster won’t save the world, but we’re hoping, with your help, it can make a small impact on the growing devastation.”
