H2O's vocalist Toby Morse started the One Life One Chance foundation in hopes to promote a Drug Free lifestyle to kids all around the world. In the last year, he's been across North America several times over, speaking at schools and other public forums and even donating musical instruments to schools with dwindling funds. Ultimately, Toby's goal is to spread the message of living life with a "positive mental attitude" (PMA) to kids in elementary through high school. He talks about avoiding alcohol and drugs, and his passion for the subject is undeniable and sincere. Toby Morse is a walking, talking example of how much someone can accomplish against tough odds while maintaining a positive outlook and drug-free lifestyle.

Toby has teamed up with Travis Barker's FAMOUS STARS AND STRAPS for a very special show this weekend at the Roxy in Hollywood, CA to help raise money for the One Life One Chance Foundation. The demand and need for OLOC to come to schools nationwide is overwhelming, and most of these schools have no budget to get them there to speak to the students that need the PMA the most. A brand new, limited edition collaborative t-shirt and poster designed by tattooer Dan Smith will be unveiled and for sale at the show and proceeds will benefit One Life One Chance. Additionally, FAMOUS/OLOC have a shirt that was only available in schools that will now be available to the world on February 6th. At the show, hardcore punkers H2O will perform with Set Your Goals and Touche Amore supporting. And for the first time ever, Matt Skiba (vocalist of Alkaline Trio) will perform LIVE with H2O.

Morse commented, "I couldn't think of a better group of people to have on board for this benefit. Travis Barker has been a close personal friend of mine for years and the participation of FAMOUS STARS AND STRAPS means the world to me. The shirt design that Dan Smith created for the event is unreal - he is an incredible artist. All of the bands playing, all of the guests coming to make special appearances... this will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for sure and I couldn't ask to share the stage with anyone else. I'm excited that all of these people are getting together to help One Life One Chance."
