Last May, Simple Plan traveled to Hanoi, Vietnam to participate in the massive MTV Exit project to raise awareness and help educate youth on the dangers and realities of human trafficking and exploitation. During their time there, the guys spent time with survivors and learned more about the global issue from local educators on what the reality is like to be an individual who is at risk of human trafficking.
In true Simple Plan fashion, the guys documented their experiences and want everyone to get involved in helping to end these horrific crimes. In partnership with MTV Exit, USAid, AusAID and WalkFree, Simple Plan has released their video diary of their journey in Vietnam. You can read more about it on MTV Buzzworthy and also watch the SP+MTVExit video for "This Song Saved My Life".
The guys were in China last week and had an awesome time. Here are some of the crazyness that went on!.
