MADISON, Wis., Jan. 26, 2011 -- When was the last time you saw someone hold the door open or even say, thank you? In this hectic, time-crunched world, the Oscar Mayer brand believes we could all use a little more good in our day.

In addition, the Oscar Mayer brand and Matthew Morrison will do something good by making a $50,000 donation to the GRAMMY Foundation, an organization dedicated to preserving our musical heritage and fostering the next generation of music makers.
"I'm excited to kick-off the Good Mood Mission by bringing people together for my first public performance." said Morrison. "I'm also happy to join the Oscar Mayer brand to support something very important to me, music education, through a $50,000donation to the GRAMMY Foundation."
