Kenny Chesney is jumping in to help out the victims of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings. He has started the Spread The Love Fund, with all proceeds from downloads of his Life On A Rock album cut, "Spread The Love," featuring The Wailers, to go to the injured who are in need of prosthetics and the care associated with that.
The Spread the Love Fund will work with Boston Medical Center (BMC) to help pay for not just prosthetics, but the fitting, ongoing care and physical therapy required.
Kenny said, "It's hard to imagine a world where taking your children to school, going to the movies or witnessing something as iconic as the Boston Marathon is a dangerous thing to do. For me, I want to help give these people as much of their lives back as possible, but I'd also like to counteract some of the negativity in the world (and) remind people that there are more good people out there, and it's up to us to 'Spread the Love.' Music can be healing. When you're at your lowest, it can inspire, the way these athletes, their friends, family and the city of Boston inspire me! I want to give back to the ones who need it, but also to heal all of us a little bit. So, spread the love."
In addition to downloading "Spread the Love", people can also donate directly to the Spread The Love Fund online at bmc.org/kenny.
