About The Video

From the YouTube page:

We are proud to share with you this Song Around The World in honor of the Grateful Dead’s 50th anniversary. Our friends at JamBase asked us to turn the Grateful Dead’s 1970 classic, “Ripple” into a PFC Song Around the world as part of their “Songs Of Their Own” series (http://www.jambase.com/soto.aspx) and after many miles on planes, trains and automobiles we can finally share it with all of you!!

“Ripple” is in support of the Playing For Change Foundation’s music schools and programs for children worldwide and we need your help. Watch the video and then let’s turn that inspiration we all share into something bigger. Join the “Ripple Effect” campaign so we can all leave the world better than we found it, one heart and one song at a time. As Jerry Garcia said, “Let there be songs to fill the air…”

Special Thanks to our Supporters: The Jerry Garcia Foundation (http://www.jerrygarciafoundation.org/), The Ripple Foundation, SeaChange (http://www.schange.com), Michael Klein and Judi Hunt.

NOTE: In fairness, the reference above should state, “As Robert Hunter said (or wrote), “Let there be songs to fill the air…” Hunter (who just recently passed away) wrote the lyrics to all Hunter/Garcia songs. Impressively, he wrote “Ripple” and “Box of Rain” on the same day.
