Our Journey

If you have landed on our site because of the T-shirt Design Contest, wonderful! We are happy to have you here and hope you take a few minutes to learn more about Kids of the Gulf. We have been on this journey for more than a year. Along the way, we have learned so much about the BP oil disaster, how it continues to impact families in the region, and quite honestly, why protecting our oceans and shores is so critical.

If you have been traveling this journey with us for a while, we thank you for being here. With each passing day—as stories of the oil spill seem to fade out of sight from mainstream media—your stories, our stories, become so much clearer. We are amazed at the ongoing support we have to make this film. We are inspired by the children and youth all over the world who want to help and want to follow our story. We thank you for your generosity, your support of the documentary, and your genuine interest in the Gulf region and its families.

One thing that impresses us most about this whole adventure: that we are attracting people from all over the world who are just as passionate about it as we are! And it’s not just about one oil spill—it’s about reducing our dependence on oil and committing to use cleaner energies. It’s about taking care of our earth and her limited resources. And, it’s about giving children a voice and opportunity to make a difference. We feel a great sense of oneness knowing you all are here to support us and our goals of healing the planet.

So now, go be creative!!! Think about what all of this means to you, and how we can best put Kids of the Gulf into a great visual for our Limited Edition T-shirt. We hope you have fun with it!

Special thanks to Ian, Kim, Jess, and everyone at the IS Foundation who have been so supportive of this effort from the beginning. We really appreciate the love!

      Muhahha, I wish Carrie were a superstitious grunge fan. Would make for a great deal more interesting series. How cool is your jumper? And that you made it yourself???Another thing that would make Carrie a much more interesting person to watch.Carrie knitting while listening to Hole and keeping a black cat which sleeps in her shoes closet. Or preferably a whole litter of them! I need this version of the series now.
