Practice for Peace

Help children around the world for just minutes or pennies a day.

Practice for Peace

“Practice for Peace” is a worldwide campaign focused on raising money for the Shropshire Music Foundation’s efforts to create peace and well-being for war-traumatized children through free musical instruments and instruction.

Musicians and music students across the world can donate their practice time to raise money for our important programs.  Students, classrooms, music groups, and individuals can get friends, family members, neighbors, or businesses to sponsor their practice time by pledging a fixed amount per minute of practice.

In addition, one child from each of our programs overseas will be practicing for the month of November. Supporters can sponsor these students below. At the end of the month, the proceeds will help to provide instruments, materials, and instruction for children in war zones worldwide.

The first 50 individuals who raise $100 or more will receive their choice of a free Shropshire Music Foundation t-shirt or a guitar pick necklace!
