We Day Toronto 2014

For the 2nd year in a row, I've had the opportunity to volunteer at an amazing event, WE DAY! The firm I work for has a really strong relationship with Free the Children, so naturally, we would also be a part of We Day. Free The Children is a Canadian-Based International Charity and educational partner with more than 1.7 million youth with a passion to create CHANGE. Its co-founders, Craig and Marc Kielburger, are among the world's most celebrated social entrepreneurs and have appears on Oprah and various other Media Streams.

To learn more about the charity and all the good that they do - check out http://www.freethechildren.com/

Being at the ACC, in a completely filled stadium of approximately 20,000 youth and educators who have earned their ticket through We Act. We Act is a year long program where students commit to taking on one local and one global action to better the world. Therefore, you know that everyone who is there, is truly there because they care, they're inspired and really believe in the betterment of our society and world. 

We Day is a celebration of all the work they have done, and consists of motivational speeches and performances from different celebrities, artists and even royal figures.

If any of you have the chance to experience this either by volunteering or just by attending, I strongly encourage you to do this. Every year I've been I always end up getting goosebumps at some point just because the energy is so crazy, the youth are screaming and shouting and it really is all over a great movement and cause! 

FYI - there is a chance that CTV or MTV will still be streaming the event or broadcasting it on their channels - you might want to check it out the We Day website: http://www.weday.com/we-day-events/
