Sorry for being radio silent for so long but we needed to take a “pause” to really think about what has been happening in our country in the last two weeks.  We fought our initial reaction to take to social media with outrage but instead chose to wait and craft a more thoughtful response.   We saw a man take office as our President who won the electoral college but lost the popular vote, we saw this same man make good on...

Yesterday we spent our morning helping our friend Sandy Daniels and her organization, Festival of Children, set-up a Christmas experience for homeless families at the Los Angeles Mission.  For years, Sandy has been bringing in a large tent filled with Christmas trees, holiday decorations and lots and lots of toys.  Oh and did I mention Santa and his elves also comes by to greet all the kids before they get to pick their t...

Seems appropriate on International Human Rights Day to be writing notes to donors who support the work of Women for Afghan Women (WAW).  This organization fights for women and children's human rights every day both here in the U.S. and in Afghanistan.   With our recent election results, it is crucial that we all do everything we can to protect and support each individual's human rights.  To donate to WAW please visit -...

What an amazing night!  Women for Afghan Women just celebrated 15 years of life saving work on behalf of Afghan women and children.  It was a beautiful evening and Theatre for Humans couldn't be more proud to have volunteered to help make their Gala event a true success.  Sonita Alizadeh, a young Afghan rap artist, received WAW's Advocate Award for her activism in stopping child marriage and Rod Nordland (NY Times Kabul b...

Just spent an incredible afternoon at Cal State Northridge listening to Kathy Eldon speak about creative activism and the organization she started to honor her son Dan Eldon's legacy.  If you have never met Kathy, she is a force to be reckoned with.  A high octane blend of passion, empathy, creativity, perseverance and drive.  When she speaks you can't help but listen and be moved to take action.  She started Creative Vis...

The book is out!  For a year we've been waiting for the Bush Institute to finish and release the book "We Are Afghan Women: Voices of Hope".  We were lucky enough to attend the book launch at the George W. Bush Presidential Center on International Women's Day.  The evening featured Mrs. Laura Bush in conversation with Razia Jan (who is featured in the new book) and moderated by Greta Van Susteren.  It was particularly fun...

A last minute trip to New York gave us a chance to see Hillary Clinton in person.  Following her big wins on Super Tuesday, Hillary held a public rally at the Javitz Center in NYC.  We braved long lines, large crowds and spent time jockeying for the best position (right next to CNN) to get a glimpse of the Democrat front-runner.  Her fans and supporters were anxious to celebrate with her and she didn't disappoint. Her voi...

An organization that is near and dear to my heart, Women for Afghan Women (WAW), will be included in a new book entitled " We Are Afghan Women".   Theatre for Humans introduced WAW to the George W. Bush Institute last year and I am proud to say that since then, the Bush Institute has been extremely helpful and supportive of Women for Afghan Women and the work they do.  This new book spotlights the stories of 29 inspiring...

2015 was filled with so many great yet unexpected moments, that I thought the photo featured in our Happy New Year post should mirror that sentiment.  This photo was taken on the rooftop of a hotel in Boston just before the New Year’s Eve fireworks display over the harbor several years ago.  Clearly someone was on this roof earlier and decided to make two tiny snow people on a small ledge.  For whatever reason, this just...

Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge has long been a goal of mine but for some reason, I’ve never done it.   My excuses have included “it’s too far away from my hotel” or “it’s would require me getting up too early” or “it will take too much time”.   Finally Women for Afghan Women gave me a reason that I couldn’t resist – help raise money for our organization.  So on a beautiful, crisp October morning, I finally walked over t...
