“Across the country, our Awareness Ties are being worn as not just a symbol but as a statement,” says IF THE TIE FITS Co-Founder, Allié McGuire. “With our Music & The Arts Awareness Tie we are standing with VH1 Save The Music and making the following statement: Music matters and makes a difference for children, with its ability to educate and empower them.”
Founded in 1997, VH1 Save The Music was the first organization in existence dedicated to restoring music programs in America's schools. For nearly 20 years, the Foundation has donated over $54 million worth of new musical instruments to 2,070 public schools in 257 school districts around the country to date - impacting the lives of more than 2 million public school students.
“We’re honored to support VH1 Save The Music as a beneficiary by donating all proceeds from the Music & The Arts Awareness Tie to their foundation,” says McGuire. With $8 being donated for every tie sold, music education in this country will be greatly supported and sustained one tie at a time through a series of campaigns and events across the country. These ties can be purchased online at www.ifthetiefits.com/VH1 and will be available at upcoming events.
