The Home Safe Holiday Giveaway

The Canadian Music Industry has come together this holiday season to stand in unity against impaired driving. Country artist, Grant Joseph, has teamed up with MADD Canada (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA), Yangaroo Music, Front Porch Music and multiple other organizations across Canada to bring you the Home Safe Holiday Giveaway. This campaign is aimed at educating and raising awareness on the risks of impaired driving while rewarding drivers for making the right choices this holiday season. 

Music has a way of sharing stories and truly resonating with everyone, which is why this initiative is accompanied by a new unconventional holiday song. The new release, ‘This Ain’t Christmas' by Grant Joseph, was written and recorded specifically to bring light to the risks of impaired driving and how to avoid such tragedies. Proceeds from the song and donations to the campaign go to MADD Canada (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) to assist in their ongoing efforts to curb impaired driving. Download the song below or find it on your favourite streaming platform!
