We Did It! 1Love Playing For Change Day was out of this world! Thanks to the dedicated support of event coordinators, fans, and music lovers like you, there were 316 events in 56 countries celebrating our annual day of music and positive social change. We’re pleased to let you know that we exceeded our goal, raising more than $150,000 for music education programs worldwide, and donations are still rolling in! It is only with your positive spirit, dedication and creativity that the Playing For Change Foundation continues to provide the resources that children need to learn, play, and grow. Click here to see how your contributions to 1Love PFC Day are making a huge impact.

Take a look at some of the fun, diverse events people all over the world put on in September. We feel privileged to be a part of such an amazing global family. Thank you. And we look forward to changing the world through music together again in 2014!

More event photos can be viewed here on our flickr stream — we couldn’t quite fit them all into a 3-minute video. Thanks to everyone who sent in photos from your events. They are amazing, and so are you.

It’s never too late to put on a special event to raise funds and awareness for our organization. You can log on to playingforchange.org/participate to scope out some ideas on how to put on a special event and get involved.

You inspire us so much– thanks for going above and beyond to Play For Change in 2013!
