Over seven months into the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses and other frontline healthcare workers are still working long hours, and fighting hard to combat the virus and protect those in need. It’s natural, then, that Careismatic Brands — a designer and manufacturer of medical apparel owned by New Mountain Capital — would use its “19 Days of Gratitude” fundraising campaign to pay tribute to the nursing community.

To honor nurses and raise money for the DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation’s traditional programs as well as their new initiative awarding nurses grants to advance health equity in underserved communities, Careismatic teamed up with the George Harrison estate and Grammy Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo for a reimagined version of Harrison’s classic “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)” featuring children singing the track from home. 

“We kept coming back to Give Me Love’s lyrics, which are incredibly meaningful and exactly what people need to hear during these unprecedented times,” Cavallo said in a statement. “George Harrison found the song to be profoundly moving and described it as a prayer and personal statement between him, the Lord and whoever likes it. If our version of this beautiful classic can brighten one nurse’s day after the incredible sacrifice they are making, it is all worth it.”
