WE movement has raised over $45 million given to over 1000 charities around the world. What this charity does is simply amazing. We have attended WE DAY twice; it's such an inspiring, motivating and educational experience. WE Day Canada will be celebrated on parliament hill July 2nd.



Also, celebrating Canada's 150th WE Store is opening a pop-up shop at CF Rideau Centre. The WE Store is a physical manifestation of the WE movement bringing to together WE organizations - WE Charity, ME to WE social enterprise and WE Day.


The We store will be a place to come together and make a change; when purchasing a unique Me to We product, you've committed to helping transform the world. Every purchase gives a life-changing gift to a child or family in WE Charity’s partner communities, from school supplies to health care to alternative income opportunities and more.



The store will have a graphic WE wall at the back of the store that encourages interactive photos and pledges – helping to grow the movement through social media posting.

Also, people will be able to create their own beautiful bracelets at the "Rafiki Bar", at two large harvest tables. This space converts into a classroom, learning or assembly space: multifunctional and engaging!



There many great products like beautiful handmade Rafiki's, greeting cards, apparel, decor and much more! There are even special items like hats, t-shirts and water bottles celebrating Canada's 150th - We Are Canada!



Celebrating the new store, WE is hosting a grand opening on June 24 from 1:00 pm to 3:0pm. Visitors can meet WE youth ambassador and WE Day Canada speaker Hannah Alper, who will be on site for the launch. WE co-founder, Marc Kielburger and Mama Helen, one of the first women to join ME to WE Artisans in Kenya, will also be there for demonstrations. Visitors can also participate in creating a 150 foot long WE are Canada Rafiki as an homage to Canada's 150th anniversary. 

Follow along on social Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest Me to We news!




In celebration of the grand opening and Canada 150, one lucky AME reader has the chance to win a WE are Canada prize pack (t-shirt, hat, water bottle and Rafiki). 

Open to Canadians 18+ (excluding Quebec). Ends June 30th, 2017

  41. I love being from a country where you can smile and say "Hi" to strangers on the street and get a pleasant greeting in return. We are known around the world as being friendly, something that is poorly lacking in the world today. I always think about the people in Gander who took in people from the landed planes on 9/11. How many people would invite total strangers into their homes and treat them like family? 'Nuff said.
