Chesney Starts Spread The Love Fund


After watching the bombings in Boston and seeing what innocent people are going through, Kenny Chesney has put up a sizeable donation and started a fund to help. Greater Media says Chesney reached out to WKLB-FM, explaining his desire to supply prosthetics to the people who needed amputations. Chesney established the Spread the Love Fund to work with Boston Medical Center to help pay for not just prosthetics, but the fitting, ongoing care, and physical therapy required. All proceeds from the downloaded single sales of Spread The Love go to the fund. Chesney's new album came out today.

Chesney says, Its 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 Id also like to counteract some of the negativity in the world Remind people that there are more good people out there, and its up to us to Spread the Love."

WKLB Program Dorector Mike Brophey said, We are extremely grateful to Kenny Chesney for spearheading a Boston-based fund that will meet real, immediate and future needs: prosthetics and prosthetic therapy for victims. This will help make their long road to recovery a little shorter. Boston Medical Center, the patients with prosthetic needs, and the City of Boston will quickly and directly benefit from the Spread the Love Fund.
