In 2005, band members announced the formation of their foundation and its mission to help young people in need through local groups and organizations dedicated to helping teens. In a statement released today, Simple Plan encouraged fans to join the growing movement of support by donating generously to the Red Cross.

The band ended their statement with: “Our thoughts are with all those affected and we sincerely hope the community can quickly get back to some sense of normality. Courage.”;
