It’s hard to believe that fall is already here. All summer long, we’ve been hitting up music festivals from coast to coast to spread the love of music and the joy of giving back. It’s almost Halloween and that means it’s time for the annual ritual: the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans.
Along with VH1 Save the Music Foundation, we’ll be setting up shop to teach festivalgoers about the importance of music education—an issue that’s especially important in a city with as rich a musical legacy as New Orleans. Last year, with your help, we were able to give LaPlace Elementary School a $30,000 grant to use toward restarting their music department—one of many such departments around the city that were victims of the long recovery from Hurricane Katrina.
If you’re going to be haunting the grounds at Voodoo, stop by the #ToyotaGiving space in the Toyota Music tent, where you can share what music means to you on one of the globes that make up our custom art installation. Then take a snap of your work and share it on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #ToyotaGiving.
If you can’t make it out to Voodoo, you can still participate in the fun by sharing your response to the question of what music means to you on your social media channels with #ToyotaGiving.
See you at City Park!
