On Aug. 25, Citizen Effect has slated a national day of action to help raise funds for educational programs designed to help fishing families impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf Coast. More than a dozen different companies and organizations have already committed to the cause.

The campaign is focused on social media and live events in more than 13 cities (and counting) around the United States, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. The events will have New Orleans themes with live jazz, blues, or Zydeco music.

Event hosts, many of them organized by the Social Media Club, will ask for a $10 donation. All proceeds being donated to Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans.
