Tweet #ToyotaGiving For An Automatic Donation to Youth Music Education


How about a free way to donate money to a great youth music education organization, World Up? It’s super simple and there only a couple more days left! The program ends on Sunday, November 18.

1. Post to Twitter or Instagram how you have been inspired by music to make a difference in the world or your community, using the hashtag #ToyotaGiving.

2. For every tagged #ToyotaGiving tweet or Instagram photo, Toyota will donate $2 to World Up, up to $5,000.

About World Up:

World Up uses hip-hop as a way to talk to youth about global issues and politics, bringing hip-hop artists from around the world into the classroom to tell their stories. Over the past eight years World Up has partnered with hundreds of artists including Lupe Fiasco and Young Guru to name a few, and has developed a curriculum that goes beyond global issues to teach youth literacy, leadership and music production skills.

It doesn’t get much simpler than that. Technology, hip-hop, and education for the young ones – and we can help make it happen with a couple internet clicks. Good deal. You can learn more about World Up via the above video (produced for another recent fundraising campaign).

With the help of the community and #ToyotaGiving, World Up’s goal is to generate 2,500 posts, enough to raise $5,000 which will be used to help expand World Up’s educational programs and work towards establishing a World Up school.

New Remix: HAIM – “Forever” (The Knocks Remix)


The Knocks make this a jumpy Friday morning with their wiggle-provoking remix of HAIM’s “Forever.” Feels like the perfect soundtrack to an 80s style aerobic workout, no? The track is available for free dowload via Facebook below!

Below we’ve also got another remix by The Knocks a la the spacey Two Door Cinema Club’s dance jam, “Sleep Alone.” Feel free to twirl about at your leisure.
