"If Everyone Cared" is a song recorded by Canadian rock group Nickelback. It was issued as the sixth single from their fifth studio album, All the Right Reasons (2005), in Australia on November 13, 2006, and in the United States on January 7, 2007. It debuted at No. 50 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in late January 2007 and climbed to No. 17. The song also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart.

It was announced that 100% of all digital sales for the song will be donated to the charities of Amnesty International, and the International Children's Awareness Canada.[2]

Music video

The video for the song was directed by Dori Oskowitz and produced by Justin Cronkite. It shows the band performing the song in a studio, interspersed with vintage footage and pictures representing famous world leaders. Those leaders are, in order: Bob Geldof, the founder of Live Aid, Betty Williams, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and Nelson Mandela, who ended the Apartheid movement in South Africa. Their stories are also shown in text during their respective scenes. Another scene focuses on the formation of Amnesty International. The video ends with the band finishing the song and packing up, which then cuts to more footage of Williams, followed by a quote from Margaret Mead.
