Item Description...
Overview
"No amount of rain can drown the music of New Orleans" says actress Helena Bonham Carter. When powerful hurricane winds tore through the Gulf Coast in 2005 leaving hundreds of thousands homeless, tens of thousands injured and countless others without parents, children, siblings and friends, the world stood in awe. There is no question that "we will dance again in Dixieland," as singer and actor Justin Timberlake put it, but when that will happen still remains to be seen. What Americans, and those around the world knew instinctively was that the rebuilding efforts would take years, and the critical funds and resources necessary to ensure that the displaced would find their way back home would be provided by a variety of charitable initiatives, organizations and ordinary citizens who simply couldn't stand by idly. Love Letters to the South, a one-of-a-kind photography book, is our attempt along with the world's best-loved celebrities, to pay tribute to all those affected by the devastating hurricanes of 2005. Their messages of hope, faith, and courage are heartfelt and deeply personal and capture the spirit of humanity in the wake of unforeseen catastrophe.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Never Forget  Nov 15, 2006
Emotions and Words expressed in this book were heartfelt and real.
A great book of rememberance and may we never forget.
 
Hope and Healing, indeed  Nov 9, 2006
Gentle and not so gentle reminders of what happened, what's been done, and what needs doing abound in this book. Each person's eyes tells me that they're not doing this as a pretty face, but as a witness. Let us each witness in our own way that what happened in New Orleans, in Florida, in Texas, could happen to us, to anyone we love, and let us witness, too, how we can each, in our own way, support, care for, and aid each other and ourselves in time of need.
 
Great !!!  Sep 24, 2006
Some books defy almost all categories. This is definitely one of those books. It is a book of hope, dreams, encouragement and support, for those who lost so much in Hurricane Katrina. This book is the brainchild of Naomi Strasser who, along with photographer friend Paul Alexander, decided to create art that would help in some small way to heal.

Alexander donated his time in photographing celebrities from around the world and from different strata of society. Many others contributed to the work, from the stylists working with the celebrities, to Ryan Priest doing the design and layout. This book was the work of the generosity of many, many people who all championed it and gave of their time and talents to make it happen.

The book is a collection of 71 unique portraits of celebrities, from Johnny Depp, Kelly Hu, and Coldplay, to Viggo Mortensen, Helen Bonham Carter and so many more. Accompanying each portrait is a letter, or encouragement note, to encourage the giving to continue. And it is for those who are far from home now, that they should keep hoping and dreaming of their return. Interspersed with photos of the actual devastation from Katrina, these notes provide hope, encouragement and support.

From Johnny Depp who writes "Help and Keep Helping", to Helen Bonham Carter stating "No amount of rain can drown the music of New Orleans", the words will challenge us to appreciate what we have and to help those less fortunate than we find ourselves to be.

The publisher, Naked Ink Press, is doing their part as well; they have committed to give at least $25,000 US dollars to both the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and to Habitat for Humanity's Operation Home Delivery. That is $2.50 from each book, sold for a minimum of $25,000 each more depending on sales.

Shawn Ashmore states: "She beat you, but she didn't break you!! Stay strong!!" Picking up this book, either for yourself or for others as a gift, will help to make those words come true. So along with Kevin Bacon we will say "Thinking of U."

It may be trite, but giving this book as a gift, will be a gift that keeps on giving.
