“Thank You” Letters – January 5th, 2011

New year, new goals! Here at Songs of Love, we’re hitting the ground running with new endeavors to keep our organization afloat and to keep achieving our constant, ultimate goal – getting songs to children who are chronically or terminally ill throughout the United States and the world. With projects like our car donation program, our “Raising Funds, Raising Voices” program and our regular fundraising efforts, we have been able to keep operating and funding the $250 cost of producing each song. Every song is personalized and unique to each child, bringing joy and comfort at one of the most difficult and trying times in their lives. The song also brings joy to the families of these brave young children. Who knew doing something as simple as donating a car or a few dollars could have such an impact? In order to make it through this year, we need your continued support. Please consider donating today. If you are still debating it, take a look at today’s thank you letter to see the impact of these songs in the words of a family who have had their child receive a song.

WOW!  Andrew’s song did arrive and it is wonderful.   Andrew lives with type 1 diabetes and has done so since he was 18 months old (he is now 10).  Regardless of our attempts to help him get through life as a typical child ~ it is always hanging over his head.  Through the course of this, even at his tender age, he is dealing with depression and some other mental health issues.  When he heard his song, he had the biggest smile that I’ve seen him have in a while. 
It is obvious that Drew does not live with the same devastating illnesses that so many of the children that you sing for do, but as his mom, I really must express my heartfelt gratitude for the time that you took to do this. 
I can’t thank you enough for all you do for these children!  Your group of talented artists are amazing people.
