Simple Plan pays tribute to the people of Ukraine with a music video that will also serve as a fundraiser.

The Montreal pop-punk band announces that they will be releasing a music video for their single today Wake me up (when this nightmare is over) which was filmed in partnership with a Ukrainian crew and actors.

The clip centers on a Ukrainian family as they fight for survival in the war-torn region, which is being overrun by Russia.

Simple Plan drummer Chuck Comeau told The Canadian Press that the idea came about during conversations with Ukrainian filmmaker Jensen Noen, who also worked on their recent videos for The antidote and ruin My life.

The Los Angeles-based director then consulted with a community of Ukrainian actors and crew in Los Angeles who helped the video come together in late March.

Simple Plan says that all money generated from YouTube views for Wake me up (when this nightmare is over) will be donated to UNICEF, which is appealing for nearly US$949 million to support Ukrainian children and their families.

The music video will debut Tuesday at noon ET.
