Win $10 iTunes GC & help restore instrumental music education in public schools

On July 28, Grammy®-nominated platinum-recording artist and VH1 Save The Music Foundation Ambassador Jordin Sparks will perform at an undisclosed location in New York City to raise awareness for Energizer’s partnership with the VH1 Save The Music Foundation to restore instrumental music education. The venue will be announced July 28, but fans don’t have to wait until then to join in on the fun.

Starting July 12, through Facebook, people can help support the VH1 Save The Music Foundation simply by clicking “LIKE” on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page and becoming a fan of the unstoppable icon. For each new “LIKE” through August 12, Energizer will donate $1 to help restore instrumental music education through the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.*

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 donation to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

“At Energizer, we believe everyone has the opportunity to make a positive impact, so we’re excited to offer our Facebook fans – both old and new – an easy avenue to make a difference through the VH1 Save The Music Foundation,” said Jim Olsen, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. “Our hope is that people will make their mark by voting or ‘liking’ the Energizer Bunny®, and then continue to learn about other ways to raise awareness of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation mission by visiting www.nowthatspositivenergy.com.”

Anyone in the New York City area can continue the music celebration by attending Jordin Sparks’ surprise performance on July 28. But here’s the catch – they’ll have to find her first! 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, check out the Energizer Bunny® Twitter handle, @EnergizerBunny or follow #EnergizerSTM on Twitter for the latest news and hints. The event is free and open to the public.

Sparks’ “pop-up” performance will kick off the series of grants Energizer and the VH1 Save The Music Foundation will make to schools around the country in need of musical instruments. Together with the Foundation, this campaign brings awareness to the importance of music as part of a child’s complete education, gives the gift of music to schools across the country and shows people a number of ways to further awareness and give back to their own communities.

The partnership between Energizer and the VH1 Save The Music Foundation is the second major initiative of the new Energizer now that’s positivenergy™ campaign. Through commitments with organizations that help make the world a better place, Energizer wants to empower people to bring some positivity to their own communities and remind everyone that we all have the power to make a positive impact.

“We are extremely grateful to Energizer for helping us spread our message through this innovative campaign,” said Paul Cothran, Executive Director of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. “By using the power of social media and involving the fans directly, they are allowing us to move towards our goal of ensuring that no child be deprived access to a complete education that includes music.”

In addition to powering music education in America’s public schools, Energizer is also powering Americans’ playlists. Right now in stores, specially-marked Energizer products contain a special code so when someone buys three participating products, he or she can go online to www.nowthatspositivenergy.com/music and redeem the codes for a $10 iTunes Gift Card.

*To help donate $1 to the Save The Music Foundation, participants must select the “like” button on the Energizer Bunny® Facebook page. One donation, per person, is allowed, with a maximum donation of $15,000 to be made by Energizer. Donation period ends on August 12. Void outside the 50 United States, D.C., and where prohibited by law.
