Hurricane season offers a variety of dangers to New Orleans citizens, especially those without access to transportation during evacuation. The non-profit organization Evacuteer.org strives to counteract these problems by recruiting, training, and managing volunteers to assist in New Orleans's public evacuation system, known as the City Assisted Evacuation Plan (CAEP). When a mandatory evacuation is called, the CAEP is designed to move 25,000 to 30,000 New Orleaneans without transportation to safety. The plan was successfully implemented in 2008 in advance of Hurricane Gustav, and Evacuteer.org hopes to expand the system to other American cities.
In addition to training volunteers, Evacuteer.org also strives to improve the current system for evacuation. One attempt to improve the CAEP in New Orleans is the Public Art + Preparedness project. Currently, the 17 pickup sites located throughout the city are denoted by signs about the size of common "Two Hour Parking" signs, rendering them easily overlooked, especially during inclement weather. The Arts Council of New Orleans has teamed up with Evacuteer.org to help make pickup sites more visible by creating dynamic pieces of public art to clearly identify each site and express the personality of the neighborhood.
Join G-Team and donate $20 to help Evacuteer.org commission 17 public art pieces to identify pickup locations. The Arts Council has already committed $50,000 to the project and has agreed to match both the $30,000 Evacuteer.org has raised and also donations from G-Team up to $20,000. G-Team members can also purchase an Evacuteer.org t-shirt for $15 (a $22 value) after making their donation to proudly support the arts and put Mother Nature in her place.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" bewarewhen you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
