In May 2012, Simple Plan traveled with MTV EXIT to Sapa, Vietnam to learn more about human trafficking and hear first-hand the devastating impact these horrific crimes can have on survivors.
Working together, MTV EXIT and Simple Plan filmed a documentary video of the experience and produced a music video for their song This Song Saved My Life on the album Get Your Heart On!. The powerful lyrics were crowdsourced from Simple Plan’s fans on Twitter, and a handful of fans were even invited into the recording studio to contribute vocals on this groundbreaking collaboration. The song and video dramatically highlight the dangers and impact of human trafficking, especially the trafficking of children into forced labour.
JOIN SIMPLE PLAN IN THE FIGHT TO END HUMAN TRAFFICKING
“Helping out young people in need is the mission of our own charitable efforts through the Simple Plan Foundation. We are very proud to team up with MTV EXIT in their campaign to end human trafficking and exploitation. We hope that, together with our fans, we can help bring awareness about this difficult situation so that organizations working in the region can empower young people with knowledge.”– Simple Plan
