The popular online music discovery and radio service Pandora is doing more than making the music you love available 24 hours a day. The company has teamed up with Global Giving to raise money for three awesome music organizations: Education Through Music, Little Kids Rock, and Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation. Pandora users can donate to any of the three organizations, and for a $10 donation or more they'll receive a limited-edition Pandora poster. In previous years, Pandora raised $40,000 for the programs, all of which are focused on music education for students.
After creating the film score for the 1995 Film Mr. Holland's Opus, film composer Michael Kamen founded the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation in 1996. With a firm belief that music education was an endangered species in public school systems around the nation, Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation began with the goal, and remains dedicated to, keeping music alive and well in our nation's schools.
