On April 9th, 2014 National We Day wowed over 16,000 students and educators from over 430 schools from across the country at the Canadian Tire Center in our nations Capital. Big thank you to title sponsors RBC and TELUS for their generous support for We Day! We were invited by Telus along with a group of other bloggers to attend this amazing event.

The entire day was just so full of inspiration and the energy is just indescribable. Founders of We Day and Free the Children, Craig and Mark Kielburger are so passionate about what they do, inspiring the world to be the change for a better tomorrow. 


So many young people are becoming more and more involved with the We Day inititatives. They can't just simply buy tickets to this special event, tickets to We Day must be earned through service. One local action and one global action is all it takes.

Every presenter on that We Day stage had their own story to share. Speakers like Martin Luther King III, Spencer West and Queen Noor and even our own Ottawa Sens captain Jason Spezza, Chris Neil and Chris Phillips among other greats took the stage with passion and power. Their voices heard and messages absorbed by everyone in the arena. Entertainment from Neverest, Simple Plan, Kardinal Ofishall and JRDN kept the crowd pumping with great music. It's so wonderful for these artists to be so deeply involved with something as great as We Day. 

 

We Day is about people coming together as a global community, one strong voice made of many to carry out and inspire our youth that today IS tomorrow and they can make a difference one small task at a time.

Thank you once again to Telus for having us as special guests. I don't think a single soul left the Canadian Tire Center feeling less than inspired and empowered by the messages heard at We Day.
