“Kindness is Beautiful” was just one of the 14 heart-warming music and behind-the-scenes videos that debuted during the DZF Sixth Annual FB Live Fundraiser. All were filmed with students from around the world this semester and were the result of the collaborations between DZF and the students. Additionally, a special guest video featuring Living Colour’s Corey Glover and highlights from the 2023 David Z Birthday Benefit Concert, which kicked off the fundraising campaign with appearances by the recently-reunited rockers ZO2 and four School Of Rock Schools at the Whisky A Go Go, were also shown.

This year, DZF has worked with more schools in more countries than ever and has received numerous awards and grants for its work. Most recently, the organization was recognized for two videos they produced in Cape Town, South Africa in collaboration with Global Lighthouse Studios and Globally Empowered.School. DZF was honored by the Second Annual Anthem Awards for its “Time To Be Well” project, which was written with Athwood Primary School about sustainable health and well-being (Anthem Awards). DZF also received two Telly awards for its “Help Yourself” project written with Gardens Commercial High School about the importance of staying in school (Telly Awards).

DZF was delighted to release 2 new international songs, "Make the Change" from Malaysia focused on being good stewards of the Earth, and "The Way of the Righteous" from Israel focused on sustaining peace across the world.
