These are the charities I currently support.
2012 marked the 25th anniversary of my association with Children, Incorporated. I have sponsored many children through their organization, and several have grown to adulthood in those 25 years.
I am deeply committed to Children, Inc’s mission and stand in awe of their integrity and great service in providing sustenance—physical, emotional and intellectual—for thousands of impoverished children around the world. I am very proud of my long relationship with them.
The Secret City is an Obie-award winning ‘church of art’: a collective of artists, and those who ‘worship’ art, who gather together for community and inspiration, and to partake in the deep human need for ritual and community. The Secret City provides artistic, emotional and spiritual sustenance in a monthly meeting that uses the structure of a church service without religion or dogma. It is part salon, part tent revival, part cabaret. It includes music, art, food, interactive games and a sermon on a different theme every month. Chris Wells, the founder and director, is a multi-talented and commanding performer, as The New York Times noted.
The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is devoted to an America free from gun violence. The campaign works to pass and enforce sensible federal and state gun laws, regulations, and public policies.
