Former Dallas star Victoria Principal has donated $200,000 (£133,333) to help clean-up efforts following the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
A leak from a collapsed rig off the Gulf Coast hit headlines in April (10), and despite desperate efforts to stem the flow of oil, it has washed ashore in states including Louisiana and Florida.
Principal has become the latest star to lend her support, offering the sum in a bid to encourage non-profit groups Oceana and the Natural Resources Defense Council to work together to overcome the environmental disaster.
Other stars involved in the clean-up efforts include actor Kevin Costner, who has been testing out a water-oil separation device designed by his brother, and filmmaker James Cameron, who held talks with officials on Tuesday (01Jun10) in a bid to help solve the crisis.
Stephen Baldwin is also filming a documentary detailing the disaster.
