You can help out those who were affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill just by dining out at restaurants participating in Dine Out for the Gulf Coast on June 10-12, 2010.

Select restaurants around the nation will be donating a portion of their profits to the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund to give help in the Gulf where it's needed most and to support its long-term restoration.

The official website states:

"The short-term goal of The Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund, administered by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is to make emergency grants to nonprofit organizations helping the victims of the oil spill. The long-term goal of the fund is to address the long-term economic, environmental, cultural effects of the disaster, and strengthen coastal communities against future environmental catastrophes by investing in solutions. No administrative fees will be charged to the fund: all funds will be re-granted to the communities in need."
