Save the Music with VH1

You might know VH1 as MTV's little sister. Of course, MTV once known to be the "video that killed the radio star", mostly shows reality shows while VH1 still focuses on the music.

Part of their focus on music includes their Save the Music program. On the first day of Music in our schools month, I saw a lot of tweets about VH1's Save the Music, and it wasn't just from teachers or research organizations. Maroon 5, Fifth Harmony, Nick Jonas, Big Sean, Katy Perry, and James Maslow among others got on board on March 1st to support VH1's Save the Music.

So what exactly is Save the Music?

Put simply, this is a non-profit foundation that eagerly supports music education at all levels of k through 12. One important note, though: They only help schools that currently do not have an instrumental music program. So, choirs don't make the mark. Existing music programs don't get any additional support. But Save the Music is still incredibly important. Not only do they provide the funding for the classes, but they also provide the instruments, so neither the school nor the parents have to spend money they don't have on such a needed aspect of K through 12 education.

Would you like to support VH1's Save the Music? It could be as simple as a donation made on the organization's website, or you can benefit both the organization and yourself! Online jewelry store Alex and Ani currently sell a Sweet Melody Charm Bangle, priced at $28.00. For each purchase, Alex and Ani will donate 20% of the revenue until the end of 2015.

I highly recommend supporting such a worthy organization!
