It all started one year ago while watching Ed Bradley interview this guy I had never heard of, Craig Kielburger, on 60 Minutes. What I saw, blew me away. It all started with a dream… a 12 year old boy on a mission to end child slavery and encourage young people to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change. What lives today?
THIS. Watch it. Please.
So when I heard WE Day was coming to Montreal, I knew I couldn’t miss it. Especially as a mom trying to raise two young boys as solid, participating members of society, I decided to attend my first WE Day yesterday.
And what an empowering day it was. Bus loads of students, thousands of students actually, ran off their buses and into the theater to attend the day. Everyone in the crowd there not on a paid ticket, but an earned ticket. That is, each school invited to WE Day has to participate in one positive action for their community. You can’t buy your way into WE Day, you have to earn it.
