For six years from December 2014 through January 2021, LisaBeth served on the Board of Directors of the Playing For Change Foundation, a global movement to change the world and inspire peace through music from all cultures. Playing for Change started the Foundation in 2007 to build music schools for children around the world to have free access to music education. LisaBeth says, “This is an amazing national and international organization and I’m so humbled to have been a part of the PFC / PFCF family and help make an impact for positive change.” PFCF is the sister organization to the internationally renowned Playing for Change music movement and the viral video of STAND BY ME with over 150 million views that helped start it all: http://youtu.be/Us-TVg40ExM

(ABOVE, RIGHT) LisaBeth created this piece of “giving back” art, and is giving it away in digital form for non-profits to use for their fundraising. They can order prints, t-shirts, canvas prints, mugs, etc., from any number of vendors, and sell or use for donor gifts, etc. If you are interested, and/or you know organizations that would like to have the art, please direct them here. From LisaBeth: I will also freely give this art to anyone else who asks nicely. I don’t want anything in return other than knowing that this could help others in some small way. The rules: This is a low-rez watermarked version. To receive a high–rez version appropriate for printing, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name & title, and the name of your non-profit. The fine print: All rights are still reserved. Please honor copyright. If you’re not a non-profit, please do not sell without permission. If a non-profit contacts me whose mission is radically different than my true beliefs, I reserve the right to respectfully decline sending the art (but we can still be friends). If anyone doesn’t like my rules, hey, sorry about that. Many thanks to all. Over many years, LisaBeth has donated proceeds from sales of her handmade cause pins to many organizations including:
