1. They might be Simple Plan but their hearts ain’t simple: the boys have the Simple Plan Foundation which has raised over $100,000 for charity.
2. Simple Plan has been recognized for their efforts too. Simple Plan were the recipients of 2012′s Allan Waters Humanitarian Award, which is annually given to that Canadian artist, whose humanitarian contributions have positively enhanced the social fabric of Canada that year. Simple Plan are also the youngest Humanitarian Award winners in the history of this award.
3. They might have penned the world’s first song in which the lyrics is comprised of tweets. This Song Saved My Life was written by you guys.
