#ShareTheLight Project is an international song and music video born out of a peace-building collaboration between the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, When We Shine Foundation and Melinda Caroll Music.

100% of all download and streaming income derived from Share the Light, goes directly to When We Shine Foundation to create more art-full workshops and creative musical opportunities for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides globally and our local Hawaiian communities, just like this!

This is How We Shine

We work towards our Mission, Vision and Purpose through implementing arts integration, creative place-making & social artistry programs that grow strong social systems and networks for healing & for human services, especially as it pertains to women, children and the environment.

Arts Integration

We develop creative arts education programs and projects for children.

Arts integration taught in our schools bestows the powers of creative problem solving, increased self-confidence and self-understanding, enhanced communication skills and improved cognition.

Creative Placemaking

Creative place-making can animate unused public and private spaces and resources, rejuvenate structures and streetscapes, improve local business viability and public safety.

It can bring diverse people together to celebrate, to inspire others, and to be inspired.

Social Artistry

Arts Activism that influences changes to better our communities and social systems at large is Social Artistry.

It educates, invites awareness of an issue and connects people to one another so they can face the problems together.
