During a time of economic troubles almost everyone is at risk of some sort and is in need of our support and assistance. Everyone is dealing with controversial dilemmas especially our majority – middle age folks. It is hard to admit that after “4 years of college and plenty of knowledge”, after all those years you spent getting your diplomas and degrees at the University, you still have no true passion for anything but gossip, are bored with your job, and you feel that it is really “sucks to be you”.
But what if we will turn our hearts and heads towards compassion and see that there are struggles even greater than yours?
Here we are glad to introduce the NY based organization called “The Songs of Love Foundation” which is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that creates free, personalized, original songs to support and uplift children and teens currently facing tough medical challenges including cancer patients and post-surgery survivors. “The Songs of Love Foundation” is the only organization of its kind: “Since 1996 the Foundation has reached out to over 22,500 children in over 500 hospitals and health care facilities in all 50 states. The songs have often been played to alleviate pain and trauma during painful and scary hospital treatments. The song recipients have played their “songs of love” in all kinds of situations and settings such as car trips to the hospital, show and tell at school, for family and friends in person or on the phone, and even for the doctors and nurses.”
The organization incudes about 350 songwriters, as well as dozens of lyricists, instrumentalists and vocalists who have “experienced the excitement of being able to give back with the talents they were given”. It is really beautiful that hundreds of schools, companies and charitable groups have lent their voices to children’s songs as well, and that this Symphony of true love and compassion includes many thousands of people!
