After Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, Nate signed up for the Angel Network team and reported from Louisiana . In the remarkable coverage of this catastrophic event, Nate provided one of the most disarmingly human moments. "That moment with you and Patrick and the dog is, I think, what sent the message home for so many people," Oprah says. "People got it [before], but that moment … was one of the greatest moments in humanity I'd ever seen. It really was."

"When I came back I was thinking, 'What is Oprah going to do?' I think the online registry for Katrina is the most brilliant thing."

To add to the donation, Nate and Linens 'n Things are donating 400 towel sets, 400 sheet sets and also 400 throws!
