Project: Katrina Hope: Help the cause by purchasing a DVD or T-shirt!

Project: Katrina Hope

    Project: Katrina Hope was founded in July 2007 by one of my KU journalism students, Gretchen Wieland, after she saw the still-fresh devastation of New Orleans almost two years after Hurricane Katrina. She was frustrated by a lack of positive coverage of rebuilding efforts by New Orleans residents and volunteers. Drawing on the indomitable hope in these people, Gretchen set out to educate and inspire others to commit to volunteering by creating a documentary focused on the people who provide this hope to New Orleans and those touched by Hurricane Katrina. Gretchen brought me in as her multimedia consultant and web master back in July 2007.
