With the help of some celebrity friends, including Christopher Plummer, Elisha Cuthbert and William Shatner, viewers will be encouraged to lend their support to the CCMA Foundation, in which all proceeds raised will be donated equally between Food Banks Canada and the Unison Benevolent Fund, as these organizations work to support Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, Spotify will help make donations stretch even further by matching every dollar (up to $10M USD globally) provided to the Unison Benevolent Fund through their #SpotifyMusicRelief project. Canadians looking to donate can do so through a one-time or monthly donation option at the CCMA Foundation website, or by texting CCMA to 20222.
