Nonprofitshoppingmall.com chooses one nonprofit partner among their affiliated organizations each and every month to highlight their mission and increase online shopping generated fund-raising levels. NPSM hopes to turn everyday shopping into everyday giving. March has been officially designated by MENC: The National Association for Music Education for the observance of Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM®). Setting the spotlight on VH1 Save The Music Foundation is nonprofitshoppingmall.com's way of helping keep music in schools. NPSM encourages supporters of VH1 Save the Music Foundation to download the organization's EZ Shopper app and thereby support them every time they shop online. That is the power of ShopAnthropy!

Since the absolute beginning of human history, music has always played a fundamental, crucial and critical role in the evolution of story telling and ultimately human communication. I can think of no greater power than music.

Everywhere in the nation, the funding for arts in schools has been cut dramatically due to nationwide budgetary problems. But music is not superfluous! It is proven that music is crucial in a child's life. Music in education furthers brain development on all levels. Children who play and enjoy music develop better spatial skills, performance skills, coordination, perseverance, self esteem and much much more.

nonprofitshoppingmall.com chose VH1 Save The Music Foundation to celebrate "Music In Our Schools Month". The company hopes to encourage music fans worldwide to become "ShopAnthropists" and turn their everyday shopping into everyday giving.

Corine Couwenberg, founder and president of NPSM: "This seemingly simple project has become a complex and profound passion for me. I seriously believe in the work that we do and I am consistently inspired by the growth of online shopping worldwide. Even in this recessionary economy, I know that if we can harness the power of that growing online shopping, our nonprofit partners will see a revolutionary new stream of unrestricted revenue."

NPSM offers an online network of nearly 700 retailers worldwide as well as solid web technology to support their nonprofit partners. The technical super hero is the EZ Shopper app. It takes a couple of minutes to download and install the widget to the toolbar. From then on it automatically tracks all online shopping+giving on behalf of the chosen nonprofit.

NPSM supports their partners through social media! nonprofitshoppingmall.com is on Twitter (ShopAnthropy), on Facebook (We Are ShopAnthropists). Furthermore the company publishes a blog (http://www.shopanthropy.com). In their latest blog post Darryl Phinnessee, Eddie Baytos, DJ Matt Cornwall, Bill Macpherson and more musicians share their thoughts on the importance of music.

Supporters and fans of VH1 Save The Music Foundation are encouraged to go to http://shop.vh1savethemusic.com/shop/apps to get the VH1 Save The Music EZ Shopper app.
