johntesh-adoptfisherman.jpgWe’ve all seen the horrific photos of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  Water birds, fish, and other sea animals have been affected along with fishermen whose livelihood depends on the Gulf. At least 27,000 jobs have been affected.

In order to help and support these fishermen, the John Tesh Radio Show has started “Adopt A Fisherman,” a humanitarian effort that will be located in Venice, Louisiana where many Gulf fishermen live.

Radio show host John Tesh says, “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.”

One representative from the John Tesh Radio Show and one from Intelligent Kindness, an organization that supports the homeless, will be touring the area to “meet with fishermen and their families to find out what their greatest needs are. They will also provide assistance which may include funds, food, clothing, medical care, childcare and, if needed, relocation assistance.”  The representatives will present their on-the-ground reports on the John Tesh Radio Show in order to connect listeners with personal stories.

To adopt a fisherman, you can visit www.tesh.com or www.facebook.com/IntelligentKindness to make a donation.  100% of the donations will be given to aid fisherman and their families.
