ACTING OUTLAWS KATEE SACKHOFF AND TRICIA HELFER LAUNCH “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” CONTESTActing Outlaws and the Gulf Restoration Network Ask Supporters to Submit Emails, Photos and Videos of What They’re Doing To Help The Environment.LOS ANGELES (October 1st, 2010) – Later this month Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, 24, Nip/Tuck) and Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Burn Notice, Dark Blue) will begin a motorcycle ride across the United States, from Los Angeles to Louisiana, taking them over 2500 miles for what they have dubbed as “The LA La Ride” – a charity event raising money and awareness for the Gulf Coastal Region still being affected by the BP oil spill disaster.Acting Outlaws has joined forces for this event with The Gulf Restoration Network, an environmental advocacy group focused solely on the health of the Gulf of Mexico.As part of “The LA La Ride” campaign, Acting Outlaws and The Gulf Restoration Network have launched the “What Are You Doing?” Contest – a contest in which entrants are asked to submit emails, photos and videos of what they are doing in their own lives to help the environment.The “What Are You Doing?” Contest (derived from the Acting Outlaws slogan, “Do something!”), will showcase some of the best entrees throughout the month of October on the Acting Outlaws website (http://www.actingoutlaws.org) before announcing a grand prize winner and runner up on November 1st, 2010.The grand prize winner of the contest will receive the opportunity to interview both Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer via Skype exclusively for the Acting Outlaws website and will also receive an Acting Outlaws t-shirt, a Gulf Restoration Network t-shirt and an autographed photo of both Sackhoff and Helfer. The runner-up will receive both t-shirts and an autographed photo as well.Both winners will have their entry featured on both the Acting Outlaws website as well as The Gulf Restoration Network website.Involving others, including their fans, has always been a consistent and integral part of both actresses involvement with charities and causes. Helfer comments, “I’m constantly inspired by the little things that people are doing out there to benefit not only themselves, but others around them and the earth as a whole. I know I need to do more myself, but I truly believe that if we all do a little something, collectively we can achieve impressive, positive changes.”Sackhoff adds to that concept, “How do we make protecting the environment inexpensive and easy? In today’s world people have more pressing concerns than the ozone or the polar ice caps. Every day people just like you are creating new ways to help. So here’s your chance. Speak up, tell us what you do, and inspire more people to “Do Something’.”Aaron Viles, Campaign Director for the Gulf Restoration Network, says, “It’s easy to look at the BP disaster in the Gulf and just be overwhelmed. But Katee and Tricia are setting a great example that everyone can do something for the Gulf, whether it’s as simple as texting to donate, or cutting down on the number of car trips you make each week. It all adds up, and we’re all going to need to stay committed to help the Gulf recover in the months and years ahead.”For the full details regarding the “What Are You Doing?” Contest please visit http://www.actingoutlaws.org for instructions on how and where to enter.To contribute to the Gulf Restoration Network simply text to donate: “FUTURE” to 85944 to donate $10 to the Gulf Future campaign for Gulf Coast recovery.
