Smile and generate smiles, live and fulfill dreams! This is BIGHUG’s purpose and through it we connected with Playing for Change. We spent days painting a work of art and understanding the project’s impact in the community of Cajuru/Curitiba-PR.
Together we have decided to present our work to the world and we invite you to help us to provide a better future for even more kids that are currently living in a situation of social vulnerability.
We take transparency VERY SERIOUSLY. From the smiles generated by the children, to each and every financial transaction.
You can follow our work with these inspiring children through the social networks of “Playing for Change Brazil” and through the BIGHUG app, and find out exactly how your donations are being used.

A Playing for Change
Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.
Our primary focus is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos we call Songs Around The World.
Creating these videos motivated us to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of our mission, featuring musicians met along our journey, and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world.
Through these efforts we aim to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.
Smile and generate smiles. Live and fulfill dreams, this is BIGHUG.
