MILWAUKEE (December 14, 2007) — Once again, Hoffman York has written and produced an original holiday song as part of its holiday greeting. “No One Should Ever Feel Cold on Christmas” reflects the agency’s own sentiments that everyone deserves the basic comforts of food, shelter and clothing, especially on Christmas. The song coincides with agency’s ongoing efforts to support the Hunger Task Force through company food drives, financial contributions and pro bono advertising.
The agency’s song encourages others to offer a generous hand this Christmas in hopes to give those who hurt, hunger and cry with despair for the everyday necessities they need. In addition to the song, the holiday greeting also features photos of Hoffman York employees donating to the Hunger Task Force food drive. “Music is often used to honor and celebrate a meaningful occasion, but it can also bring people together at a time of uncertainty or motivate people to take action,” said Tom Jordan, chairmen and chief creative officer at Hoffman York. “For many, the holidays are a time of anguish, and we hope this song inspires the community to help these people who are less fortunate.”
The song is a creation of Jordan and collaboration between Hoffman York and What the Hale Music Production in Chicago. In the spirit of the season, “No One Should Ever Feel Cold on Christmas” is available free to the public and for broadcast at www.hoffmanyork.com. The song is also on www.youtube.com.
“No One Should Ever Feel Cold on Christmas” is the agency’s newest music composition. In 2006, the agency released its first holiday song, “I Wish Every Day,” which celebrated the spirit of Christmas and Hanukkah. In addition to its holiday songs, the agency has received immense recognition for its creation and use of original music in advertisements ranging from “Who Comes First?” written and produced on behalf of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to “You Don’t Have to Play to Win,” created for the Wisconsin Lottery in collaboration with Ray Charles.
