SamaritanMag Spotlights Billy Talent's Charity Trust

By Aaron Brophy

After years of giving back, Canadian rock band Billy Talent has launched a charitable trust. The band, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, if you include their previous incarnation Pezz, announced the appropriately titled Billy Talent Charity Trust (BTCT) as a means to give back to various organizations they support, starting with a campaign to aid the MS Society of Canada.

The band — frontman Ben Kowalewicz, drummer Aaron Solowoniuk, guitarist Ian D’Sa, bassist Jonathan Gallant and drummer Jordan Hastings (who joined when Solonowiuk's multiple sclerosis preventing him from touring) — have teamed up with Funding Innovation to create Billy Talent Plaques, special, limited edition gold record plaques that include a live photo of the band, artwork of the band's various singles, as well as autographs from all the members. The framed awards will retail for $299 and are only available for two weeks. Proceeds will go towards the MS Society of Canada.

"From our start 25 years ago, it’s been important to our band to give back" – Continue reading Billy Talent Launches Charity Trust with Limited Edition Gold Plaques by Aaron Brophy on the Samaritanmag website
