A Little About Us

Jamie was always trying to find ways to help others. 

This fund supports a variety of projects that Jamie cared about, in ways that remember his distinct style and colorful sense of humor. We are directly donating to the Alvar Public Library, Jamie's Bookplate Project, and facilitating partnerships with the Vermont and New Orleans Food Banks. 

Keep checking back here for updates on how all this is going.

Here's what we've done so far:

  • Catalogued many of Jamie's books.
  • Given a beautiful library couch to Alvar Public Library in New Orleans, projector, screen for community events, and lots of books that Jamie loves. Also, outdoor furniture—chairs and an umbrella to the garden outside the library.
  • Ongoing talks with CLiF, a children’s literacy foundation through which we are identifying a town in Vermont where we will support their library.
  • Vermont food bank, New Orleans food bank—donating money for different food initiatives.
  • And our dream — The Ham Boy Express — a refrigerated truck that will transport food to hungry people in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans.
