The New Orleans-based organization Women of the Storm launched a bold new campaign Tuesday morning aiming to collect 100 million signatures for a petition urging action on a plan for Gulf Coast restoration. The petition, which already has more than 3,000 signatures, simply states: "I demand that a plan to restore America's Gulf be fully funded and implemented for me and future generations."

A host of celebrities with roots in the region have rallied around the cause, and can be seen in the campaign's inaugural video. Sandra Bullock, Wendell Pierce, Drew Brees, John Goodman, Dave Matthews and Blake Lively are just a few of the stars urging people to add their voice to the petition.
