Founded in August of 2010 by Alene Albright to Help Gulf Coast Families affected by the Deepwater oil spill.
BRIEF OVERVIEW OR HANDS ACROSS THE GULF
Hands Across The Gulf was founded in August of 2010 with an initial Benefit Concert featuring special musicians that live along the Gulf of Mexico. Alene Albright, the founder of Hands Across The Gulf, had a vision of helping families, fishermen and businesses that were impacted by the Deepwater oil spill. Many of her friends suffered financially, physically and mentally and Alene could not sit around and watch. Enter Hands Across The Gulf.
After a attending several events in New Orleans, Florida and Texas Alene saw a need to offer a legitimate solution to the health concerns of those suffering from chronic health concerns. She also recognized that our current healthcare system in America is nothing more than SICKCARE. Therefore, Hands Across the Gulf has partnered with companies that offer non-pharmaceutical options to improve the health of Human Kind by:
Removing toxicity from our bodies
Perfecting the water we drink, shower and bath in
Providing clear air in homes and businesses
Offering proven nutritional remedies
HISTORY AND FACTS OF HANDS ACROSS THE GULF
Hands Across the Gulf was conceived during the height of the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. As mentioned above hundreds of people fishermen, suppliers, restaurateurs, hotel owners and others whose livelihood depends on the Gulf of Mexico were being shut down, displaced and otherwise negatively affected by this disaster.
Initially, the need of those affected was mostly financial, so Hands Across the Gulf was founded to coordinate benefit concerts in the Gulf Coast states with the goal of raising money to donate to charities that already existed to help those in need.
A year and three benefit concerts later, it is apparent that not only is the financial need still as great, but additional and more long lasting problems have emerged. Story after story of sudden, unexplained health problems have been reported by both residents and clean up workers, including respiratory issues, digestive problems, unusual skin lesions and rashes and more. And there have even been reports of about people who have died as a result of these unexplained illnesses.
The common thread joining all of these people together is exposure to the oil and dispersant that spilled and was sprayed into the Gulf of Mexico. Many such as mainstream news and our government would have you believe there is no connection between the oil spill at all, and the health problems of the residents and clean up workers, but there is just too much anecdotal evidence to believe otherwise. Moreover, both the oil and Corexit (the chemical used to disperse the oil) are known toxins. “The EPA asked BP to stop using Corexit, which is banned in 18 countries due to its toxicity, but the oil transnational refused.” (Dr. Sircus’ Blog, August 5, 2010).
