Are you ready for back-to-school? Energizer is getting ready by partnering with the VH1 Save The Music Foundation to help restore instrumental music education in America’s public schools. Grammy®-nominated platinum-recording artist and VH1 Save The Music Foundation Ambassador Jordin Sparks is kicking off the campaign, and through the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page and @EnergizerBunny on Twitter, you can also get involved.
Live Performance in NYC with Jordin Sparks
Jordin Sparks will perform at a secret location in New York City on July 28. If you live in the NYC-area or will be in the area, come join in the fun. The location of Sparks’ performance is a mystery, so keep your eyes on the VH1 Save The Music Foundation tab on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page, and follow hashtag #EnergizerSTM on Twitter for the latest news and hints. Location will be revealed the morning of this free event.
Like the Energizer Bunny on Facebook and Help Increase Energizer’s Support to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation
Now through August 12, people can help support the VH1 Save The Music Foundation simply by clicking like on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page. For every “LIKE” through August 12, Energizer will donate $1 to help restore instrumental music education through the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.
Help Energizer Pick a Grant Recipient
Energizer is making eight grants to public schools around the country, and fans of the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page will help direct one of these grants by voting for a city where an instrumental grant will be made. Cities vying for the now that’s positivenergy™ grant from Energizer and the VH1 Save The Music Foundation include Philadelphia, Birmingham, Minneapolis, New Haven and Weirton, W.V. Energizer is supporting these grants with a $250,000 overall donation to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.
