Kenny Chesney has established the Spread The Love Foundation to support patients who need prosthetics as a result of the Boston Marathon bombing.
All proceeds from digital single sales of “Spread The Love,” his track co-written and recorded with the Wailers, go to the foundation.
Chesney teamed with local station WKLB-FM for the effort and is donating a sizable amount of seed money to start the fund which will be used at Boston Medical Center or other area hospitals.
“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,” Chesney says. “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… Remind people that there are more good people out there, and it’s up to us to ‘Spread the Love.’”
Boston Medical Center has established a dedicated link for the Spread the Love Fund at www.bmc.org/kenny.
