I signed up around the same time Cyclone Larry hit the northern state of QLD in Australia. This was a category five storm and although we were lucky not to have any fatalaties, many people lost their homes and treasured memories, just as they did with Hurricane Katrina.
I have my own small business doing photo restoration and retouching , so saw this as a great opportunity to help out, especially since I wasn't in the position to contribute financially.
I have now restored four photos for OPR and have enjoyed the challlenge. It's great to know my small efforts are making a difference to the lives of those affected.
Lets hope we can get OPR running globally and see this project grow.
Keep up the great work OPR. Looking forward to getting to know some fellow volunteers.
