AMY ROSS WANTS YOU TO SEND YOUR PENNIES TO THE ANIMALS AFFECTED BY THE OIL SPILL IN THE GULF.

GOAL
Welcome to my Pennies for the Gulf non-profit organization.  My goal is to help the animals affected by the Gulf oil spill by collecting pennies and/or donations from Hilton Head Island and surrounding communities. **Donate today to an animal in need.**

DONATIONS
This project has been recognized by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF).
NWF supports this effort by Amy Ross and the Pennies for the Gulf initiative to collect donations for their program.

The donations will be sent to the NWF in care of the “Gulf Oil Spill Restoration Fund” as the NWF has been named the beneficiary of this account.
