“When in doubt…do something!”
Harry Chapin had a goal: he wanted to end world hunger during his lifetime. So he did something about it. He raised and donated millions of dollars by performing “one night for me, and one night for the other guy” throughout his career. He co-founded World Hunger Year (now WhyHunger), and Long Island Cares (now The Harry Chapin Food Bank). He lobbied Congress and President Carter to get involved. And he encouraged his fans to make a difference.
Countdown to Race Day
Harry’s music and his humanitarian work are forever linked together. Here’s the “Chapin anthem” that he sang at the end his concerts.
