“We Day” Is Coming To The United States
“We Day” is an event that was created to “empower, educate, and above all, inspire” teenagers. Created by two Canadian brothers, Craig and Marc Kielburger, their goal was to give kids a way to get involved and make a difference in global and local issues they care about. In 1995, the brothers formed a charity called “Free The Children,” and after helping kids raise millions of dollars for causes around the world, they decided to create an annual stadium-sized event in cities across Canada, to celebrate and thank the young people whose charitable efforts had done so much good.
The first We Day event launched in 2007, and in 2013 it is coming the United States for the first time. It brings together a roster of famous musicians, celebrities and lecturers and the only way kids can attend the event is by earning their way in. Tickets are not sold; they can only earned by doing something to help somebody in need.
We Day is a pro-active way to get kids involved in public service and charitable work, and it’s catching on. The kids love it! Check out this rewarding, high-energy event in the video below.
