The Disney Channel is inspiring kids and their families to make a change with the help of rising star Bridgit Mendler.
As the anthem for Disney's Friends for Change initiative, "We Can Change the World" is the 18-year-old actress' contribution in the effort to benefit global charities. The song she co-wrote and performs debuts on Friday, after which Disney will donate $250,000 dollars to the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund.
Mendler and over 30 other Disney stars will also compete in the "Disney Friends for a Change Games" where they're split into four teams battling in a series of fun and physical challenges. The victorious team will receive $100,000 for their charity of choice. Viewers can take part by pledging actions to help out the planet.
Check out our exclusive sneak peek at the music video which features Mendler alongside Disney Channel stars from around the world, including Valeria Baroni (Argentina), Jorge Blanco (Mexico), Olavo Cavalheiro (Brazil), Nicole Ishida (Japan), Murtuza Kutianawala (India) and Eve Ottino (France).

Disney XD will present a special episode from the games on Monday nights beginning June 27 (9:30/8:30c). The Games will culminate with a special half-hour episode Sunday, July 31 on Disney Channel.
