This upcoming week (Wednesday November 6) I have been chosen to go to We Day Saskatchewan.
We Day is a concert and public speaking event that inspires young people like you and I to help change the world. It was founded by Craig and Marc Kielburger, co-CEO’s of Free The Children.
I’m happy because this event is going to inspire me to help make a bigger change in the world. I may not be able to make a huge contribution the way the speakers do, but I can still contribute to my community and help the world in other ways. Some ways to help the world is to raise money to help a less fortunate girl get an education. Maybe I can get my school to raise money for a well. I don’t know. The people who are going to speak have a lot of experience with making a difference and that will make it all the more inspiring. 🙂
I’m excited because my family has decided to volunteer at the animal shelter. I’ve volunteered at Big Brothers Big Sisters once. I’ve donated things to a shelter. Back in Ontario my mom and dad used to be in social services and use to take me to a couple of things. I realized since then I want to help make a difference. Not everybody has had the experiences I’ve had. We always have done little things to help.
People who are speaking include
Hannah Alper- child blogger and youth speaker for We Day. You can follow her adventures at http://www.callmehannah.ca
Spencer West– We day ambassador and double amputee
Craig and Marc Kielburger- We day founders an co-CEO’s of Free the children
And so much MORE!!!!!!
I will be posting pictures on my instagram and twitter the day of!! I hope you follow me and see what I have learned about making a change at We Day. A band called Neverest will be playing!! Who knows maybe one day I will have worked enough and be privileged enough to help in the way the speakers have been able to.
