Music lovers around the world will rally once again to spread peace through music with the Playing For Change Foundation’s (PFCF) third annual global event on Saturday, September 21, 2013. This year marks a new beginning as Playing For Change partners with the 1Love Foundation for this year’s event, renaming the event 1Love Playing For Change Day, Make Way for the Positive Day. On this day, musicians and fans will gather on stages, street corners, schools, and even watch via live-stream music performances, concerts and events that promote peace and positive social change.
Inspiring the collective audience of both Playing For Change and 1Love, 1Love Playing For Change Day will raise awareness and funds to create lasting change through music for generations of children to come. Proceeds from the event will provide direct support for the Playing For Change Foundation’s free music education programs that serve children and their communities around the world. 1Love, a foundation started by the Marley family, works to inspire a global community to join together and build a better tomorrow, a philosophy shared by the Playing for Change Foundation that will be realized by bringing music into the lives of young people who might not have access to it otherwise.
People in every corner of the world will be able to participate in this memorable day of music by hosting, attending, or performing at an event on September 21st, 2013. Even those who are unable to physically go to an event will have the opportunity to watch one of the many performances streamed live online.
1Love Playing For Change Day is a unique opportunity to advance the missions of both organizations and forge even greater connections as the world comes together to play for change. The event will build on the success of PFC Day 2012, during which thousands of volunteers hosted over 300 events in 52 countries on 6 continents. Funds raised through the day will support PFCF music programs that give children the opportunity to develop new skills and find personal expression through music.
