Playing for Change Foundation

I have been meaning to write about the Playing for Change Foundation for sometime now. Dedicated to the notion that peace and change can be achieved through music, the foundation seeks to provide musical education to people around the world. They write:

The Playing For Change Foundation is dedicated to creating positive social change through music education. We are driven by the belief that peace and change are possible through the universal language of music. By providing children a safe place to learn, flourish and express themselves, PFCF helps provide a creative alternative to the struggles many of these children face daily.

On 22 September 2012 the Playing For Change Foundation will host its annual day of action where musicians and others can come together to celebrate music and make a change in the world. In 2011 this special day saw 225 events hosted in 41 countries raising around $62,730. Take a moment to check out their website, and if you can, get involved!
