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.\
All over the planet, musicians play on stages, cafes and street corners, to raise funds for a cause. For the last edition in 2012, 320 events where organized in the same day in 52 countries, and raised $165, 000.
The next PFC Day is coming...mark your calendars for September 21, 2013. Take action and join the cause for this day !
