Nothing my daughter could have told me about We Day last year, could have prepared me for the sights and emotions, of actually being at the event. I have to send a big THANK-YOU to Telus, for being a sponsor of We Day, and sending me there to share in the event. You just can’t explain to someone who hasn’t been there, how inspiring the speakers were, or how much energy there was in the crowd. How do you explain the feeling of positivity and happiness, that simply radiated from the building? We Day has inspired our youth to build schools in Africa, help with breakfast clubs in Canada, and ask for donations for their special events, to buy goats for families in need! We Day is so wonderful because it not only inspires, but teaches our youth how to get started with volunteering. I hope it continues to come to Atlantic Canada, and new students get to go, every year. If this event continues to inspire and powerfully impact our youth, I know there will be changes, for the better, in our world.
If you want to start working to make change in the world, download the We365 app and go to the Take Action website! Our family is planning some great fundraisers in the new year. I can’t wait to share them with you and hear all about the ways you have been inspired to help others! Remember, it only takes one person to make a difference and it can happen here in your own city! There are people all over the world who need help and kindness!
