PBII once again focusses on a social issue. This time they've chosen the Stichting KiKa (“Kinderen Kankervrij” – Cancer-free children's foundation). The project is called 1000Wishes and it includes a rock opera, a music CD and an eponymous book. The lyrics of the rock opera and the CD are based on the story of nine-year old Eric who bravely enters into battle with cancer. A story about courage and victory.  The principal objective of this initiative is to raise money for the Stichting Kika through the proceeds of the rock opera and the sale of the CD and book.
