Music moves us.
Music unites us.
Music changes lives.
And sometimes, music can help to change the world.
1BlueString is a joint initiative of 1in6 (USA) and Living Well (Australia), to promote awareness and support for men sexually abused in childhood and for their partners, family and friends.
Research tells us that 1 in 6 men are sexually abused in childhood and that it can have a profound effect on their lives and relationships, often leaving them feeling isolated. Men, when they do come forward, speak of the importance of encouragement and hope and knowing that support is out there.
To help increase awareness and symbolise community support for men and their loved ones, 1BlueString is inviting guitarists to replace one of the six strings on their guitar (1in6), the low E (top) string, with one blue string.
