Instructions for when it's your turn to sing . . .

1. Share the story 

Here is a sample

"Today we will be celebrating the International Day of Peace with children from all over the world.  In a few minutes, we will be singing the song "Light a Candle for Peace" which will be sung by over 125, 000 children from over 65 countries. The song will begin in New Zealand and travel from school to school, country to country, and time zone to time zone until it reaches the Hawaiian Islands 24 hours later.  For 24 hours the voices of the children will sing for peace.  Peace in our governments, peace in our neighbourhoods, peace in our homes and peace in our hearts.  For one day, we will sing one song, and for just one moment, all of us who want and love peace . . . will be one."

 Children from across the planet will come together to sing for peace on Wednesday, September 21st 2016 to celebrate the International Day of Peace. The singing will commence on the shores of New Zealand and continue from country to country until it reaches the shores of the Hawaiian Islands 24 hours later.   In 2009, "Sing Peace" involved over 65,000 children from some 35 different countries. We hope to reach 100,000 children singing for the 2016 event. Start today.
