Halloween is over and, to me, the holidays are already here! It’s a time of thanksgiving and charity! After this year it seems like a hard sell to be joyous and charitable. Which is why I want you to send me any press releases or information if your company is doing something good for those less fortunate, the environment, animals… anything your company is spending money to help make better I want to write about it!

We at E&P magazine believe that your charitable contributions — voluntary, monetary, etc. — are just as newsworthy as new found production!

At a recent gala Halliburton, Weatherford, and FMC Technologies showed their support for Medical Bridges, an organization that redistributes America’s medical supplies surplus to hospitals in developing countries (see story). It is so incredible to feature articles of how our industry is making a difference in lives around the world. It puts the energy industry in a better light than the gloom and doom that is normally all over the press.

For more information, or to send press releases, send an email to rtorrellas@hartenergy.com. Let’s change the perspective and make a difference!
