Denise Thornton the founder of Beacon of Hope Foundation in New Orleans.
There are many volunteer organizations in New Orleans; all doing good work, trying to help New Orleans recover from the destination of Katrina.
Carnival chose The Beacon of Hope to have those of us going on the Blog2NOLA cruise who wanted to at least show our small token of support, while we were in the city, before boarding the Carnival Fantasy tomorrow.
Here's some pictures from the cruisers helping to clean and repaint a park in the Lakeview area.
That last one was Mrs. Kuki pole dancing

The Volunteers.. BRAVO!!
