NEW YORK, July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Songs of Love Foundation is a national nonprofit organization that creates uplifting, personalized songs for children and teens struggling with a life-threatening illness or lifetime disability -- free of charge. Each CD is professionally produced with lyrics containing the child's name and references to all of his or her favorite activities, things, people, and pets. Songs are written and performed in the musical style that the child likes best (pop, r&b, rap, rock, alternative, etc.), by a variety of talented professionals.
As each child is unique, so is every "song of love" composition. In 12 years, the Songs of Love Foundation has reached out to nearly 19,000 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.
Through its vehicle donation program called CARS(TM)(Children Are Receiving Songs) The Songs of Love Foundation accepts donated cars, trucks, recreational vehicles and boats, which are then sold to generate proceeds for its mission of music. There is no need for the donor to take the car anywhere as the foundation comes and picks up the vehicle at the donor's location, free of charge. A receipt is given for tax deduction purposes.
Unlike many auto donation programs which often act as middlemen for a variety of charities, Songs of Love runs its own car donation program so when donors call their toll free number they are dealing directly with the charity. Songs of Love has received the Best in America seal from Independent Charities of America, which is only given to 2 percent of charities nationwide.
