Designer Nate Berkus was vacationing with his partner, photographer Fernando Bengoechea, in Sri Lanka when the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami hit, claiming Fernando's life. In 2005, Nate made his first appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show since the disaster and shared his story of survival.

Nate was overwhelmed by the response from fans who shared their sympathy and support in thousands of letters. After the show, audience members expressed their sympathies face-to-face as a teary-eyed Nate thanked them and recalled their words of compassion and hope.
