Pediatric AIDS Foundation

The For Our Children album is dedicated to the Pediatric AIDS Foundation, a unique non-profit organization dedicated to funding critically needed pediatric AIDS research. Over 80 percent of the raised funds are directly allocated to scientists around the country, with the other funds distributed to the foundation's other programs.

Because Children with the HIV virus are affected much differently than adults, research must be funded and conducted separately in the fight against pediatric AIDS.

Harry created the music for the Robert Altman film starring Robin Williams.

"Nobody wanted him [Harry] at first except Robin Williams. Everyone said 'You'll get in trouble with him -- he'll get drunk; he won't do it; he's all washed up.' As a matter of fact I said all of those things about Harry to Robin myself one day. Then I went home and thought about it and said to myself, 'Jesus, that's what some people are saying about me!' So I called Harry Nilsson, because I had never met him in my life, and we got along terrifically." -- Robert Altman.

The basic tracks for Popeye were recorded in a studio specially built on location in Malta. Harry wrote at least three of the film's songs on location.
