Marc and Craig Kielburger, founders of Free The Children’sWe Day, came to Vancouver last Thursday to join forces with students from B.C who are all leaders in their own communities! Participants included Al Gore, Martin Sheen, Hedley, Ethan Zohn from Survivor, Colbie Caillat, Rick Hanson, Spencer West, Phillippe Cousteau, and Reverend Jesse L. Jackson! What an inspiration! It’s never too early to get involved and never to late to be inspired! These guys are inspiring our youth of today to stand up, speak out and believe that they too can make a difference, NOW!
“It’s more than just one day of celebration and inspiration. It’s a one-of-a-kind event and part of an innovative year-long program created to celebrate the power of young people to create positive change in the world.
The event kicks off a year-long program of action, called We Schools in Action. We Day is free of charge and open to any school that wants to be part of the experience. In exchange, each school group that attends is asked to make a commitment to follow the We Schools in Action program, which includes taking local and global action throughout the year.
Since 2007, youth from across North America have come together to discover the passion they have in common, to celebrate their successes, to become aware of new challenges, and to build lasting friendships. The We Day events feature speeches and performances from global leaders and social activists, cultural icons and entertainers.” Quoted directly from the We Day website! Enjoy!
