1001 Ways launched The Gandhi Tour at the 10th Earthdance hub event in California on September 15th 2006 together with special guest Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi.
In its small "Peace World Tour 2004" (New York - Lahore/Pakistan), 1001 Ways offered a Calabash to the UN at the "No Excuse Concert" in New York signifying their support of the Millennium Development Goals fighting hunger and poverty.
