We Need Your Help: Donate to TEDxOilSpill and Get a T-Shirt

As you may be aware, TEDxOilSpill was organized in under 4 weeks by a team of volunteers headed by Nate Mook and Dave Troy. There was no big corporate sponsor, and although we did our best to keep costs to a minimum, putting on an event is not cheap. A few incredible sponsors helped make TEDxOilSpill possible, but we are still about $3,500 short of covering our costs.

We need your help to raise the rest of these funds. Please donate whatever you can. While supplies last, if you give $20 or more, we will send you a limited-edition TEDxOilSpill t-shirt (example below) in the size you request.

We want to be completely transparent about this, so below we have detailed our current expenses and income.
