“For there is always light if only we are brave enough to see it.
If only we are brave enough to be it.”
- Amanda Gorman, National Youth Poet Laureate

Share The Light
#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.
Artists Are AWESOME!
“Artists are the gate keepers of truth. We are civilization’s radical voice.”
– Artist & Social Activist, Paul Robeson
Everyone can be an Artist and the Arts – whether musical, visual, digital or performing – play an important role in Movements for social change. They serve as a conduit to shift narratives and become records of our social movements.
We commend and recognize Artists for their audacity to dream, commitment to help create dynamic social justice, and dedication to helping make the world a better place …especially for women and girls!
