We Day 2012

Today I am going to be apart of something Amazing, We Day!  I was able to volunteer for this event through the Royal Bank, one of their sponsors., 

This event celebrates the Power of Young People to Create Change.

We Day is an event that starts off a year long commitment to taking action both locally and globally. It brings together the greatest social justice leaders and entertainment currently!!!  This year Al Gore will be speaking and I couldn't be more excited! One of my political crushes for sure!

Two of the main organizations behind We Day are Me to We and Free the Children.

Me to We is an organization created by two brothers Craig and Marc Kielburger.  Me to We is a social enterprise that empowers people to make a socially responsible choice in their everyday lives.

Free the Children is an international charity that helps young people to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change. There mission is:

Free Children from poverty and exploitation and free young people from the notion that they are powerless to affect positive change in the world.

Some of the musical talent this year are Jennifer Hudson, Hedley and Nelly Furtado.

I can't wait to be a part of this great day and event.  I'm looking forward to making a change in at least one of the 20, 000 youth that will be in attendance today!
