This from our friend, the dear Maia Duerr of The Jizo Chronicles and the Upaya Chaplaincy Training Program:

Here’s a small resource list to get this off the ground:

If you’re interested in connecting with other dharma practitioners who want to go to the Gulf region to volunteer, feel free to comment in Maia’s post and find each other.

    It kills me that I can't do this right now…I would love to help in cleaning this mess up. I quit driving and started bicycling to do my part in preventing this. Be the change. Blessings to every being affected adversely by this.
