For Valentine’s Day you can make a donation in your loved one’s name to support the Songs of Love Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing personalized uplifting songs, free of charge, for children and teens currently facing tough medical, physical or emotional challenges. The charity will notify your loved one. It is essential to boost the spirits of these children to help make them as happy as possible while battling their illness.
Each youngster’s CD is professionally produced with lyrics containing the child's name and references to all of his or her favorite people, activities, pets, and things. Talented professionals write and perform the songs in the musical style that the child prefers
Since 1996 the Songs of Love Foundation has reached over 25,000 children in over 500 hospitals and health care facilities. Children often listen to their personalized songs to alleviate the trauma of scary hospital treatments. They have played their songs in car trips to the hospital, show and tell at school, for family and friends and even for the doctors and nurses. Their "Songs of Love" are always available to them whenever they are feeling down.
Songs of Love focuses on the often neglected importance of treating the patient in their current moment of struggle. Supporting Songs of Love is a wise social investment that keeps paying dividends in the form of repeated smiles whenever an ailing child hears his or her very own song
Songs of Love has received the "Best in America" Independent Charities of America Seal which is only given to one percent of charities across America.
