When We Shine

When We Shine, was composed by Melinda Caroll and the participants of #Arts4Change2016  

at Sangam World Center in Pune, India. It was the theme song for WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts)  World Thinking Day Music Video Challenge (#WTD) with 54 video offerings from all over the world, including Madagascar, Syria, Australia, Ireland, India, Japan, Puerto Rico, Greece, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and the UK, to name a few. When We Shine has now been translated into Hindi, Burmese, Malagasy, Spanish and more languages in progress!

Our Minds are Blown as the song, WHEN WE SHINE, continues to travel 
to over 146 countries around the world, connecting over 10 Million Girls and Young Women! From tiny far reaches of the planet, some whose countries are in the middle of devastating wars and conflicts
, girls and young women are singing and dancing in Solidarity, for our Shared Hearts and Wishes for Good on our Beloved Planet!  So, do share the song with your Girls and Council and let them know the download is free through October 16, 2017.
