La chanson du bénévole | Song of the volunteer

La chanson du bénévole, Song of the volunteer, is the 2014 single from Restaurants du Cœur (known as the Restos du Cœur; "Restaurants of the Heart"), a French charitable organization that distributes food packages and hot meals to the needy.

The song features a variety of French celebrities singing as a group known as Les Enfoirés (French for "The Tossers" or "The Bastards"), and they perform annually in a charity concert. The single was written by Jean-Jacques Goldman and composed by Frédéric Château.

The organization was founded by the comedian Coluche in 1985. These annual songs by "Les Enfoirés" represent a strong tradition of French philanthropy and civil society.
