Badge of Life Canada was exclusively chosen to partner with The Taylor Foundation to support local veterans and emergency personnel living with PTSD. Founded on the mission of uplifting local organizations around the world working in PTSD and mental health space, the legendary Corey Taylor of Slipknot is dedicated to leveraging his personal celebrity influence to raise awareness and funds for non-profit organizations like Badge of Life Canada.

Badge of Life Canada Executive Director Laura Kloosterman was super excited to partner with the Taylor Foundation and expressed her appreciation and gratitude to Corey and his foundation for his support and commitment in his campaign to bring awareness to the issue of mental health.

Badge of Life Canada was thrilled to host an in-person live Facebook stream with Corey himself on Sunday 29th of May 2022 at 14:30 (2:30 pm) EDT. You can watch the video on our YouTube channel by following the link above.

As part of the collaboration with Badge of Life Canada, the Taylor foundation partnered in our giveaway contest for 2 VIP tickets and experience to The Knotfest Roadshow concert at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa. The contest was a great success and our winner enjoyed a tremendous show and VIP experience.

A Message from Corey

“When I was young, my grandfather was a Korean War vet who was tormented by his time in the war. I saw how it affected his life, and I always wondered why there wasn’t more help for him. During my career, I’ve been privileged to have many veterans and people in emergency services support me, telling me how much my music has helped them with everything they’ve had to endure – from combat stress on the job to the inevitable repercussions that come from PTSD. Now, it’s my turn to give back as much as I can to them. The Taylor Foundation is committed to doing everything it can to help our military, law enforcement, and all agencies who have saved us time and again. It’s our turn to help save them. I hope you can join me.”
