It has been another amazing year for Playing For Change. This fall the PFC Band completed its largest tour ever. On the road we rekindled old friendships, and rejoiced in new ones. Along the way we learned about an amazing project called “The Smooch! Project” that was started by Bonnie Fournier, a Minneapolis-based photographer.
Smooch! is a documentary record that demonstrates that all humans, regardless of social, economic, or political barriers, share a joyful willingness to welcome love and affection into their lives. To learn more about this beautiful project, click here.
As soon as we learned about Smooch!’s mission, we were excited to get involved. Bonnie offered to do a “Smooch! shoot” with the band while we were in town for a show, and we readily accepted– that’s where the above pic of PFC Band drummer Peter Bunetta being smooched by our roadie/photographer Lindsay Fishman came from!

Since its humble beginnings in 2004, The Smooch! Project has archived thousands of images, working toward their goal of 10,000 smooches. If you would like to “pucker up” and be a part of this historic, heartwarming effort email Bonnie: [email protected]
From all of us at Playing For Change, we wish you a very happy holiday season surrounded by friends and family, love and light.
Peace and Love from Boston,
