Hello, citizens of Sabine Pass!

I just want to come by and say that Greg and the crew at Simmons Homes, you guys have been absolutely incredible.

It was completely different. Usually we help out one family and build one house ... It's tough to do one house in a neighborhood that doesn't have any houses.

We had to wait until FEMA and the government said we could come in. I was not prepared for what I saw down there. When you see it firsthand, it looks like Hiroshima. ... We were hoping we could go down and help out where it would affect a lot of people: churches, community centers.

The fact that they would want me on the cover, it's kind of an honor.

Our show proves that some pretty incredible things can happen when people come together.

The one thing about our show is some pretty incredible things can happen when people come together and help people in need.

If you lose the sounds coming out of New Orleans, you lose part of the American language. I realize we're just a TV show, but we feel we have a real obligation to let these people know we haven't forgotten about them, that we'll do whatever we can to make things right.
