About me & my work:

I'm gay, married to my husband Jimmy for 16 years. We have three beautiful children - triplets actually - who are eight years old. I'm committed to personal transformation in the world. I created the AIDSRides and Breast Cancer 3-Days - we took 182,000 people on the civic heroic adventure of their lives, and raised $582 million in the process. I wrote the book, "Uncharitable," about the counter-productive way we think about charity - it became the best-selling title in the history of Tufts University press and led to a TED talk that became very popular and has changed the American conversation about charity.
