Help for Haiti: James Taylor and Me

January 28, 2010 1 comment

James Taylor and I are simpatico these days.  Even before I heard about Taylor’s benefit concert and the additional $150,000 he planned to donate, I had already sent my contribution to the same charity that Taylor is supporting:  Partners in Health (PIH).  The amount of our contributions is almost exactly the same, too—uh, minus four zeros.

Until I finish that novel, land an agent, and sign a mega book deal, my contributions will continue to be minus the four zeros.  But I am committed and plan to continue to make monthly contributions to PIH.  Partners in Health has been working on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years, training doctors, nurses, and community health workers. The organization works to bring modern medical care to poor communities in nine countries around the world. For more information visit

For more on how I plan to raise money for PIH, check back here next week.  And thanks, James, for showering the people of Haiti with love.

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will
