Lucy Lawless was filming Vampire Bats when Hurricane Katrina tore through New Orleans. Lucy escaped the devastated city. Many people lost their homes and sadly many lost their lives. This section of AUSXIP Lucy Lawless deals with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It had a profound effect on Lucy and to everyone else who witnessed the absolute devastation on property and human life.

  • Added a new section: A Friend In Need Books, Cards & Toys Campaign
    Helping Hurricane Katrina Survivors One Step At A Time.

    The A Friend In Need Cards and Toys Campaign was initiated by fans from
    the Official Lucy Lawless Fan Club after a news article on an angel called Lily Duke. As MNBC reported:
    Within days after Hurricane Katrina hit, Duke managed to do what other relief agencies couldn’t: get food and water to her neighbors. Since then she’s expanded her network, distributing medicine, packaged lunches and bags of ice to as many as 20,000 people a day.

    Lily can't do this on her own - she needs help and the fans have decided to lend a hand.

Friend In Need Update - Toy Drive

Just got off the phone with Lily Duke.  She's so excited about Taipo's plan and how you're all pitching in.  I told her we might be around to help her even past the holidays  <G>

She mentioned for any folks wanting to send toys that the boys are getting short shrift.  Seems everyone sends girl toys, but forgets the young gentlemen!  They're in need of things like sports items -- baseballs, baseball gloves, soccer balls, basketballs and the other items associated with those sports.  And for the younger boys, Tonka trucks and other small boy toys.

No weapon toys, please.

A couple of tough days ahead for Lucy as she heads back to New Orleans to lend her support to the fundraising efforts. It's going to be a very tough ride back but not as tough as the people that have lost their homes and have lost loved ones. My thoughts and prayers go out to those people and to Lucy and Sharon.

Lucy Attending New Orleans Fundraisers Nov. 23 and 24

The following is from Sharon Delaney / Official Lucy Fan Club

  • Lucy's headed off to New Orleans tomorrow to attend a couple fundraisers on Nov. 23 and 24.  One is the New Orleans Louisiana Sheriff's 31st Annual Thanksgiving Day Celebration at the New Orleans House of Blues.  Another one is in Jefferson Parish on Nov. 23.  She wants to help raise awareness that there is still much to be done in New Orleans and on Thanksgiving, this is the time to find a way to do some giving ourselves.
  • Further to the announcement above Sharon indicated she will be going with Lucy and filming thier journey: Iam going with her and the video camera is powered up and loaded with tapes.  I'll be documenting every part of the trip I can.  I don't know that we'll have any internet access so I may be offline until Thanksgiving night.  I don't really have any words for what I'm feeling right now.  Both Lucy and I just hope some good will come of it. Everyone take care of yourselves and each other.

Tickets for the New Orleans Louisiana Sheriff's 31st Annual Thanksgiving Day Celebration are not available. According to the press release:

"On Wednesday, November 23, the night before Thanksgiving, the House of Blues has offered the venue, upon its return since being closed following Hurricane Katrina, to have a free concert for the first response team as its first event. Tickets will be distributed by lottery."

Sharon wasn't sure if Lucy was to perform at the free concert.
