When Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita slammed the Gulf Coast, it was no time for laughter. Instead, Chris joined the Angel Network team in Texas, helping the Houston Food Bank deliver much-needed aid to residents. He even loaded up a truck with supplies and went in search of families who desperately needed food. "It feels really good to be out here and to be contributing," Chris said. "It's black and white, Mexican and Asian—everybody's out here together—helping to help people. This is incredible."

When Chris met one little girl in a shelter, he told Oprah he was reminded of his own daughters. "I said, 'Who are you with?' And she's like, 'My daddy.' To her, nothing was going to go wrong as long as she had her daddy," Chris said. "You think you've got all this other stuff, but all you've got is family. I think this experience will affect me for the rest of my life."
