To All Retouchers

I came across this today and it seems many here could I imagine would help out. Victims of Katrina lost valuable photographs to the elements and some of those that survived have been damaged. A group called Operation Photo Rescue is looking for volunteers to help out with the huge work load. This has probably already come to your attention if so feel free to delete this thread.

I didn't see an email address or anything in the blog, but I found an email for them in one of the media stories:

OperationPhotoRescue@gmail.com

My skills aren't that great, but I offered to help any way I could.

I also will take on a few...might as well be doing some good with our mice, right? You always hear people say that photos are one of the worst things to lose in any kind of disaster, and I think that hits all of us close to home.

They sent me 3 pictures to do earlier this afternoon, a couple don't look too bad but the third one's gonna be a pain. My parents were visiting today and brought a cd an uncle had made of some of our family's old scanned photos and can't imagine how much it would hurt our family to lose those pictures so I'm definetely gonna try my best on the ones they sent me.

Thank you for posting the link. I just sent them an email as well. I can't wait to be able to help out. I know some of us do this for a living but bringing a smile or tears of joy to someone in need is what it's really all about. Like I mentioned to them.... I couldn't imagine such a loss. I once lost a whole bag of video tapes that had my one son's first birthday, halloween, and many other home videos of going to Disney, etc. I still feel a lump in my throat when I think about it. If I lost all of my photos.... oh I don't even want to think about that.
