Simple Plan - Simple Plan Land Charity Honour

Rockers Simple Plan are to be honoured for their charity work in their native Canada.
The Welcome to My Life stars will receive the 2012 Allan Waters Humanitarian Award in recognition of their work with the Simple Plan Foundation, which was set up in 2005 to help youths in need and children facing life-threatening illnesses.
Drummer Chuck Comeau says, "Words cannot express how grateful we are to be the recipients of this award. (It) is a true honour for us.
"As a band we have been very fortunate to receive the constant support of our fans, which has allowed us to continue doing what we love for the last 10 years. Because of that, we believe that it is extremely important for us to give back, and the Simple Plan Foundation is our way to do this.
"We are very proud of all of our Foundation's initiatives - they have helped to define us as a band and have become a large part of who we are. There is no question that the Simple Plan Foundation will continue to grow and that we will be able to help our communities for many years to come."
Simple Plan will be presented with the accolade at the 2012 Juno Gala Dinner in Ottawa on 31 March (12).
The Juno Awards themselves will take place the following night, on 1 April (12).
