The Canadian pop/rock band, Marianas Trench, has created a new music video that has inspired many people all over the world.
Marianas Trench was formed in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2001. They have made lots of music that teens have enjoyed over the years. Recently, the band has published a new music video for their new track, “Who Do You Love.” The video shows the band spending their music video budget on good causes in their community. The band distributed ice-cream and caramels at the Creekside park near Science World, and donated toys and money to BC’s well known SPCA. The band donated to popular health organizations such as the Ronald McDonalds house, BC children’s hospital,and the Lewy Body health dementia organization. The video’s main purpose was to explain to the viewers that paying it forward will make a difference in your community.
“There is no reason why we have done this project, the world has experienced a lot of cynicism due to the recent election and the horrible things that are going on. When we came up with the idea, we got right to work,” said Jonathan Simkin, the band representative. “We took the operation to Vancouver to help our own community. We have donated to many of these causes because we believed in the Golden Rule, do unto others as you would have done unto you.”
When the video was published, it gained a massive amount of views and one of those viewers is one of Riverside’s vice principals, Ms. Pamela Becker.
“I saw the video on Facebook,” said Becker. ”I have to say that it was clever and well done, and I think it’s a great way to promote random acts of kindness when you can just show all the ways you can give back to your community.” Becker also noted that although money is necessary, being a good citizen is more important. “The video has inspired many people to pass the torch of kindness, and I want everybody to know that they have the ability to do the same.”
