Larry King Live Telethon helps three groups in Gulf


June 21, 2010 -- The Larry King Live Telethon "Disaster in the Gulf: How You Can Help" will help our neighbors in the Gulf region of the United States that have been badly affected by the rush of oil droplets that are invading the brush, beaches and way of life in the area. The states that have been touched by this disaster include Louisiana, Alabama, and Florida.

While the BP Oil spill continues and the funds to help the people and animals are being set up, the ides behind the  Larry King Live Telethon is to raise awareness about the situation and get funds there now (and not like two months from now.)

The funds are going to three groups, donors can pick one of their choice:
