As we reported last night, there are a lot of important things going on right now besides just entertainment news. One of them is the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf and the relief efforts.

This past weekend, our crew joined Jordin Sparks in New Orleans for a special episode of Cambio Cares. In the episode, out July 6, you'll get a first-hand look at the devastation caused by the spill.

Two other celebrities who have been very vocal about the need for more Gulf Relief support are Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols from "One Tree Hill." The on-and-off screen couple have never been fans of social networking but recently made them to raise awareness for the Gulf.

Nichols told Zap2it, "We started accounts because we were so angry about the spill. We wanted to get as many followers as we could before we got here so that we could tell people what's going on." You can follow them: sophiabush</a> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.twitter.com/AUS10NICHOLS">aus10nichols.

The couple took a trip with Global Green USA last week to Louisiana to survey the damage (video below). Some of the footage is haunting and so sad. To view photos from the trip, go here.

Bush also appeared on KTLA yesterday morning to talk about the experience. She said, "I was really, really traumatized when I started seeing images coming from the Gulf and had a great hunch that we really weren't getting the information as to how bad the situation was&#8230;I went down there angry and I came back absolutely enraged. It is so much worse [than what you see on TV]."

Bush also announced on her twitter that if she wins the Teen Choice Award for "Choice TV Actress: Drama," she will sign the surfboard and put it up on CharityBuzz for auction to raise money for the victims of the oil spill.

To find out how to get involved with Global Green USA, visit globalgreen.org. Leading up to Jordin's episode of Cambio Cares, and even after, we will be keeping you updated on Tropical Storm Alex and other happenings in the Gulf. We'll also be sharing more stories of celebrities and others getting involved in the relief efforts.
