Woman sells belongings to go help in the Gulf

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) – A Lee County woman is selling some of her belongings and other donated items to raise money to get down to the gulf and help animals that came in contact with oil.

Amanda Barber held a yard sale at her Lee County home on Friday and Saturday.

She is part of a group of South Georgia animal experts who expect to be called into action.

They have not yet received that phone call, but Barber doesn't want to wait any longer.

She said the images from the gulf coast that many people are heart broken about spurred her to go on her own.

"Basically it was all of the pictures and I said I'm going to go and see if I can help, because at least I can do that," said Amanda Barber, Bird Specialist.

Some people have been generous; she's received $250 dollars from a stranger.

Barber and a friend plan to leave for the gulf coast next Thursday and hope to volunteer her time at a rehab facility in Florida's Western Panhandle.
