THE JOHN TESH RADIO SHOW has launched a humanitarian effort in VENICE, LA to help the many fishermen and their families who have lost their livelihood due to the massive oil spill in the GULF OF MEXICO.
JOHN TESH is letting listeners "ADOPT A FISHERMAN" to provide donations of food, clothing, medical care, childcare and relocation assistance if needed. The effort is being led by JOHN TESH's wife CONNIE SELLECCA and her INTELLIGENT KINDNESS outreach program for homeless veterans and the homeless. "UNCLE" VINNY SELLECCHIA and KATHY BANNING of the INTELLIGENT KINDNESS outreach will be on the ground 75 miles south of NEW ORLEANS in VENICE, LA to meet with fishermen and their families to determine their needs and send updates back to the JOHN TESH RADIO SHOW to let listeners know how they can help.
According to INTELLIGENCE FOR YOUR LIFE radio host, "The oil spill has taken away the livelihood of the large fishing community here during the prime income-producing season. Many families are in severe financial peril and are still waiting for some kind of assistance from either the government or the oil companies. Our goal is to ascertain what their immediate needs are and then connect our millions of radio listeners to these families in order to provide relief. We also hope that others will join us in order to help those affected by what is now one of the worst environmental disasters in history."
CONNIE SELLECCA added, "We know we cannot single-handedly take care of each and every family, so our mission in this effort is to encourage others to join in the effort."
