Happy 30th Birthday,Whitney !!! This One Is For You

Whitney Hess

My daughter Whitney has turned into a locavore. Her heros are Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp. She is very serious about saving the farms of America. Instead of accepting gifts from family and friends for her 30thbirthday, she asked everyone on her blog, called “Pleasure and Pain,” to contribute money to Farm Aid. Her goal is to raise $30K.

Basically, most of the money will be raised online.

Whitney explains, “Thousands of family farmers in the United States are pushed off their land every year. As large factory farms are replacing them, the quality of our food is severely diminished, and our environment and our food security is in danger.”

  1. Thanks so much, mama! I’m really excited about the chance to change the way people eat in our country by starting with the place our food comes from. I hope my campaign can help educate people about what they choose to eat in order to make better choices for health, environment and deliciousness! I love you guys very much.

  2. I could not think of a better way to honor Whitney, you and Eliot. What a wonderful young woman you have raised. Happy Birthday to Whitney. A role model to be sure. B

  3. Whitney looks great, Lois! And it looks like she is doing great! This reminded me it was 17 years ago we were at her bat mitzvah at The Pierre. Harrison was 8, my daughter, graduating Oneonta now to be an elementary school teacher, was all of 5. That’s life. That’s what people say. Hope all’s well…. spoke recently on FB chat to Dana Apple, and she mentioned you hooking her up with Marcia Grand’s daughter. I told Dana that you are the mother of all networkers and were doing it before it was called networking. When it comes to energy, lo is not in your vocabulary.
