The last two years have been a bit of an anomaly when it comes to giving back. With the 2016 election cycle, we saw a slew of newand important causes hit the top 10 charts, most notably human rights and humanitarian causes. But over the last year, and especially in the last few months, things appear to have changed.
It’s been about a week since #GivingTuesday and we’re still replaying all the special moments of cheering, laughter, hard work and happy tears. Our entire company rallied together to achieve new heights of Goodness. It started with our small (and mighty!) crew and it spread…into our local communities, across our international client community, among thousands of charities and all over the Twittersphere.
If you’d asked us two weeks ago how it would go, none of us could have predicted that:

For over 20 years, VH1 Save The Music Foundation has been committed to helping kids, schools, and communities reach their full potential through the power of making music. The benefits of music education are well-known, from improved academic performance to stronger self-esteem.
