Please help us spread the word.

Selected children will get to perform on the Pacha’s Pajamas musical soundtrack and be at the forefront of a youth movement for Nature’s Rights!
Plus, everyone who signs up to audition will receive a free copy of Pacha’s Pajamas ebook.
Vandana Shiva, Adviser for the International Forum on Globalization, writes in the book’s foreword, “’Pacha’s Pajamas’ presents unheard voices, songs and stories of nature, calling forth empathy for all beings and engaging young people in a conversation about the future.”
Acclaimed author and environmentalist Julia Butterfly Hill says, “To inspire and re-inspire all people—of all ages—to care for the Earth, each other and all life is vital for our human species to not only survive, but to thrive. Creativity like ‘Pacha’s Pajamas’ plays an important role in this, our collective story.”
