Philanthropy

My father was killed in Haiti in 1990 shortly before work began on our shared dream to restore basic dignities to people living in squalor in Haiti. After he died, the dream haunted me. This is the primary topic of my  book, Anse-à-Vodou: A Summer with My Father in Haiti.

I have struggled with How to do More. Right now, I’m keeping it simple,  following  inspiration: “Do what’s possible and what’s impossible becomes possible”, and a very complicated problem is looking less complex. I lit my candle and kept going and I’m certain there’s a light at the end of the tunnel because as Leonard Cohen said, “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” 

I have two projects very dear to my heart, in Haiti and in Colombia. 

In Haiti, I am helping Sister Dona and her work rebuilding her school in Kenskoff, Haiti. The school housed 100 students and now houses 6 because it is in a disastrous state of disrepair.

We need $10,000 to give the children back their school and home. To make a tax deductible donation please click here.

In Colombia, I am helping the Arhuaco, Kogi, Wiwa and Kankuamo of the Sierra Nevada to do what they do 24/7, care for the Mother of us all, Mother Earth.
