My brother Harry Chapin
co-founded WhyHunger in 1975.
I have been a proud board member since the beginning, and have seen how WhyHunger has touched
the lives of millions of people as
a strong advocate for innovative, community-based solutions to hunger and poverty.

In this tender rhyming picture book, a mother readies her child for bed. Their nighttime ritual includes bathtime, brushing teeth, hugs, and a storybook read aloud. Once tucked under the covers with stuffed animals, the child is lulled to sleep, watched over by her night-light and puppy friend. This is a wonderful bedtime story with sweet text by Deborah Lee Rose, complemented by the warm illustrations of Dan Andreasen.
I put the words to this children's book to music.
Song available for download
on CD Baby and iTunes.
Book and song sold separately.
"There will never be a magic book that puts every child to sleep, but this hushed cadence is certain to soothe"
for a lifetime spent making and sharing music,
being a citizen of America and the world, acting locally
and thinking globally, teaching us how to sing together,
work together, dream together of a better, sustainable planet.
I feel blessed to have had so many chances to connect with Pete
- a hero of mine since childhood -
and always, it seems, for a good cause.
The last time was in November, 2013,
at the Towne Crier Café in Beacon, NY,
to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the creation of the Weavers.
To quote my friend Scott Ainslie:
"Mandela and Seeger. My oh my. Heaven is in for it."
