You can add another reason to your list of why you're buying the entire second season of ';Glee' on DVD when it comes out, besides wanting to relive the hilarious ';Blame It On The Alcohol' barfing scene and sing along with Rachel's ode to her headband and Brittany and Artie's hotel-inspired cup song for Nationals.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and the National Association for Music Education announced the "Glee Give a Note" campaign yesterday, which will donate $1 from every ';Glee' Season 2 on DVD and Blu-ray sold to school arts programs across the country. Even better, they have already guaranteed that, no matter the sales, they'll donate $1 million dollars.
Want your school to get part of the million dollar action? Schools can submit videos explaining why they should receive a ';Glee' grant at GleeGiveANote.com now through October 4th for a chance to win. Videos will be posted online for people to vote and a whopping 73 schools will get grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 - just think of how many slushies that will buy for the year… and anything else your school's music clubs need.
"Millions of kids are attending schools where music programs have been cut," said Michael A. Butera, executive director, National Association for Music Education. "Each week, ';Glee' is sticking up for school music, giving a voice to students and teachers who understand that music is essential to a complete education."
';Glee: The Complete Second Season' comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on September 13th.
