As part of the campaign, Pennzoil will donate $60,000 to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, which has provided $43 million worth of new musical instruments to more than 1,600 public schools across the country since its inception in 1997.

"We are incredibly honored to have Pennzoil contribute to the Foundation," said Executive Director of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation Paul Cothran.
