Songs of Love hope to strike a chord

Chase Bank has teamed up with a popular social networking site in a Community Giving initiative.

The award-winning Songs of Love Foundation, which has helped more than 20,000 children nationwide and works with major New York-based hospitals including North Shore/LIJ, NYU Medical Center and Montifiore Medical Center, stands to win $1 million if they receive the most votesbefore January 22 on the Chase Community Giving facebook application.

Working with social workers and child life specialists, the Songs of Love Foundation — which creates personalized songs for children with a life-threatening illness free of charge — has helped bring joy and comfort to seriously ill children with their special form of music therapy. One million dollars would help provide a “Song of Love” to more than 4,000 children.

Their work has been featured on 60 Minutes, NBC Nightly News and the Today Show.
