Oh if a man tried to take his time on earth, and prove before he died what one man's life could be worth, I wonder what would happen to this world.

This site has been re-created by Harry Chapin's family to celebrate his 30 year legacy, what he wrote, what he sang, and what he accomplished.

We are sharing Harry’s "Story of a Life" through photos, music, stories, poems, and his commitment to "A Better Place to Be."

Harry's stories are resonating now through the generations. His music continues to touch people and make a difference in their lives.

We honor Harry’s “do something” spirit by featuring many of the non-profit organizations that he started like The Harry Chapin Foundation, Why Hunger, Long Island Cares, among others, and the important work they are doing.

We will continue to bring new stories, music, and products to the site.
