BWBacon is a flute sponsor for Playing for Change Day!

BWBacon is a proud flute sponsor for the next Playing for Change Day event, scheduled for September 22!

PFC Day is a global benefit event to promote peace and positive change through music. The Playing for Change Foundation makes it its mission to create positive social change in the world through music education. 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. To date, they’ve built eight schools, often in locations that suffer from extreme poverty, lack of basic resources, limited medical care and educational resources, past conflicts and genocide, unstable governments, and a host of infectious diseases.

BWBacon has a long history of supporting Playing for Change and it’s missions in a variety of ways. Dave Bacon himself acts on the board of the directors. BWB has also connected them with some of our BWBacon’s friends like HiDef, Inc. and mGive to support last year’s Playing for Change Day event. Recently, BWBacon Group has connected them with Denver’s very own music project, Flobot.org’s Youth Media Studio, being built In the South Lincoln/Mariposa community near the 10th & Osage station.

And finally, if you were appreciating those sponsorship icons, yours truly is thrilled to be able to actively support them through an in-kind donation of design work:

These are the sponsorship icon’s Jacklynn from BWB developed for the event. They feature some of the instruments the children of the Playing for Change school’s learn: the flute, the sarangi, and the djembe.

Today we had the happy task of making a few donations in the name of some of our candidates as part of our BW Giving Program.

What?! You didn’t know about our Giving Program? Well, every candidate has the option to choose a charity that BW Bacon will donate to in his or her name out of our profits. BW Giving is part of each candidate’s contract with us.
