Today is the big unveiling of the project that Simple Plan and the MTV Exit team worked together on while the band were in Hanoi, Vietnam earlier this year. Many of you have guessed it right already, a very special video for "This Song Saved My Life".
MTV Exit is a massive campaign and movement to end the criminal act of human trafficking. With partnerships with USAID and WalkFree, MTV Exit and Simple Plan joined forces to create this video highlighting the suffering and abuse that is the reality of thousands of exploited youth around the world.
This campaign is very close to Simple Plan and the goals they work towards with their involvement with the Simple Plan Foundation.
Watch the MTV Exit Simple Plan video for "This Song Saved My Life" and share it with your friends. Learn more about the work of MTV Exit and how you can join Simple Plan in the fight against human trafficking by visiting mtvexit.org.

It has just been revealed that Simple Plan will be the 2013 recipient of the Allan Slaight Humanitarian Award during Canadian Music Week! The award is being given to the band for their ongoing work and fundraising efforts with the Simple Plan Foundation to support youth welfare.
"Simple Plan's worldwide success is a testament to their spirit and tenacity as one of this country's best and brightest bands. These five guys from Montreal are truly inspiring with their dedication to give back to youth struggling with adulthood and youth living with illness. The creation of the Simple Plan Foundation very early in their career is a reflection of the connection they have with their audience and the world their fans live in.My father and I are delighted to present them with the Allan Slaight Humanitarian Award", commented Gary Slaight, President and CEO of Slaight Communications.
Chuck says, "we have been very privileged to have the chance to live all of our dreams thanks to our band. We are extremely grateful to all of our fans who have been supporting us for the last ten years and who are the main inspiration behind the Simple Plan Foundation. The Foundation is our way to give back and help young people who might not have had the same opportunities as us. It has been one of the most rewarding experience of our lives and we look forward to continue what we started for the rest of our career.”
