WHY WE NEED YOU
The Playing For Change Foundation relies entirely on the contributions and donations of its supporters to keep its mission alive. These donations directly help to build, staff and equip new and existing music schools in communities in need of hope and inspiration.
Our mission is grounded in inspiration, and in addition to your monetary support, we need your inspiration too. We strive to connect the world through music and in so doing, we also strive to connect our advocates with our cause. Our growing community of sponsors, from the individual to the corporation, has the opportunity to be creatively involved and linked to the growth and spirit of our cause.
On September 21st, fans and supporters from 56 different countries performed in concert halls, cafes, and street corners to celebrate 1Love Playing For Change Day, our 3rd annual event! Over 315 registered fundraising events helped raise more than $100,000 to support the Playing For Change Foundation's global music education programs for children.
The last hurdle: dealing with musicians. Sure, we had the contacts, we knew who we wanted and we had enough people to fill our almost 9 hour time slot. Somehow we managed to deal with 3 drop-outs in the week approaching the event, and a last minute drop out of one group at 12 AM the evening before the concert. Play for Change Ridgefield was nothing if not a game of Twister!More Info
