Reaching out to others about my experiences in and around New Orleans. I've been volunteering with residents of New Orleans since April 2006, and falling in love with the city and its people since our move to Baton Rouge in 2005.

Check out Josh Charles - download a song, help rebuild New Orleans through the Preservation Resource Center
My friend, Kim, hooked me up big time tonight with Josh Charles, a musician helping out New Orleans through his music. When you download his song "Healing Time", 100% of the proceeds go to the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans. I just learned about the PRCNO tonight, too, and will definitely visit their site for more information about their outreach.
Please check out his work and tunes at Josh Charles. Spread the word. Download the song. Thank you!
Chris Williams, professional photographer, New Orleans
I've just discovered an amazing professional photographer out of New Orleans. I found Chris Williams through the U2.com website. It's nice to have found a fellow fan who's also a photographer in New Orleans. Check out some of his imagery.
It's also good news to see organizations having their conferences in New Orleans. Keep the heart beat of the city pulsing strong by continuing to visit. Thank you.
I especially like that there will be charity portrait sessions for the families who survived the devastation of the levee failures. I remember working with the children in Renaissance Village and how thrilled they were to use the camera to take pictures of one another. It's reassuring to know that maybe that feeling will be generated again with this outreach.
