Simon & Schuster  announced this week that “Mildred Pierce” star Kate Winslet is authoring a book of celebrity self-portraits to raise money for autism treatment.

The book, called The Golden Hat, is comprised of photos Winslet compiled. These include self-portraits by Christina Aguilera, Ricky Gervais, Jude Law, Julianne Moore, Maria Sharapova, Ben Stiller, Meryl Streep, and Naomi Watts—among others.

In each of the photos, the stars are wearing hats in honor of Keli Ericsdottir—a boy from Iceland suffering from autism who wrote a poem about a magic hat that helps an autistic boy to communicate. Ericsdottir suffered from a severe case of non-verbal autism before eventually learning how to verbally communicate.

Alongside each photo, the featured celebrities have answered a question about what their first words would be after years of being physically unable to speak.

Winslet was inspired to do the book last year after narrating “A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism“—an HBO documentary that chronicled Ericsdottir’s story.

Sales from The Golden Hat will be donated to Winslet’s autism-focused charity, The Golden Hat Foundation.
