"Toys for Peace" was written for us by Ray Korona and Pete Seeger (a legendary Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductee) to propel this movement of Peace. "When you make a child smile, you build a bridge to Peace".
Pete Seeger is also the inspiration for Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen created a folk CD: "We shall Overcome, The Seeger Sessions" in honor of Seeger.
