Kenny Chesney Starts “Spread the Love Fund” at Boston Medical Center
Kenny Chesney is establishing the Spread the Love Fund, working with BMC to help those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. Besides making a sizeable donation for seed money, all of Chesney’s proceeds from the downloaded iTunes single sales of “Spread the Love,” his track co-written and produced by the Wailers, go to the fund, which will benefit post-acute care for victims of traumatic injuries from the Boston Marathon bombings at BMC or other Boston 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.”
