I have helped to organise a fund-raising event annually for the last three years in the Uk for the Playing for Change organisation; primarily because I agree with their philosophy that music is a unifying force and language in a very fragmented world, and secondarily because it is good to see the fruits of this fund-raising benefitting children and young people all over the world through musical education. I know the events we have held in Cumbria (Uk) have been life-changing in a most positive way for all who have participated and attended as well as for all those who have benefitted from the money raised. I hope and trust that Playing for Change will continue to grow and help change the world for the better. Hannah Appleyard
Playing for Change understands that charity begins with a gift and only remains so, if that gift can be used by communities in a sustainable way. My work in the non profit sector has enabled me to see what works and what doesn't: Playing for Change is an organization with a universal message and global mission. The music, the vision and the passion have inspired me from moment one. This is a non profit that deserves recognition as a global leader for change.
