Band and orchestra geeks unite!
March is Music In Our Schools month, so it's time to celebrate. If you ask any member of the ThinkGeek crew, we grew up with music having played some part in our lives, and it helped shape us into who we are today. Music holds a special place in our monkey hearts, so of course we want to show support to music programs nationwide!
In keeping with the spirit of our monthly donations, we're contributing $1,700 to Music 4 More -- a local charity organization focused on collecting and providing instruments and resources to struggling school and community music programs across the country. In addition to that, Music 4 More is receiving plenty of ThinkGeek goodies as well!
Throughout the month of March, they are conducting a series of StageIt concerts to promote Music In Our Schools and may be giving away these new shinies as tokens of appreciation for tuning in. This will lead up to the end of the month where they'll be hosting a music festival in Chesapeake, VA; it's a two-day event (March 29-30) benefiting the children's schools and hospital there. Our goodies might be handed out at the shows or at the hospital and schools the musicians visit, so if you're in the area, please come check it out! There will be over 50 artists performing, so you won't want to miss it.
If you'd like to get more involved, please visit the Music 4 More Music In Our Schools Month donation page, where your contribution could help repair and purchase new instruments and supplies for music programs in need.
Please help keep music a part of our future generation's lives!
