Put on a different Hat...

This is just a beautiful concept...
GOLDEN HAT FOUNDATION
"I was reminded of this when I learned about a new documentary, narrated by Kate Winslet “A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism,” about a young nonverbal Icelandic boy named Keli. Kate was moved by the efforts of Keli’s mom, Margret Ericsdottir, to find a way for her son to learn to communicate. “I simply couldn’t conceive of how devastating it would be,”Kate said, “not to be able to hear my children’s voices.”
“Put the hat on your head and think about how much we takes communication for granted,” she told them. “How would you communicate who you are in a quote? What would the words be? Express something that’s important to you.”
One of my favorite quote came from Justin Timberlake–”In life, try on as many hats as you can. You might actually find one that fits.”

The list of 100 photographs also includes Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, ElijahWood, Tom Hanks, and Conan O’Brien. All proceeds from this book will benefit the Golden Hat Foundation.
