We Day Minnesota 2015

Two years ago I attended We Day for the first time. I was motivated but completely overwhelmed at the end of the day. I had no clue what We Day entailed and no clue how it would change my life and the lives of friends.

We Day is a day long celebration of kids doing good in the world. Inspirational speakers such as Chelsea Clinton, Marlee Matlin, and Henry Winkler and concert acts such as Ciara, Nico & Vinz, and Natalie La Rose make We Day a star studded event full of energy and dedication to change. You can’t buy a ticket, you have to earn it through service and making a commitment to take action on at least one local and one global initiative.

WE is We Day, Free The Children and Me to We. Together, our three brands make up a family of organizations that work to empower each of us to make the world a better place.

We are all connected. Together WE change the world.

There are many different ways to get involved in the WE movement. One is through We Schools. The We Schools program provides educators and students with curriculum, educational resources and a full calendar of action campaign ideas. We Schools is how many of the kids earned their tickets to We Day. If you can’t motivate your school to become a We School, how about becoming a We Family? Download the free We Family Guides for ideas on how to change the world as a family or participate in a WE Day take action campaign together.

This year my daughter Nutty was able to attend We Day with me as junior press (her post will be up on the blog in a day or two). She was so motivated by the event that she wants to start We Schools at her school. If they say “no” we’ll become a We Family and convince a few of Nutty’s friends to join us on the quest.

Celebrating 20 years since two brothers, Marc and Craig Kielburger started Free The Children, We Day will make 14 stops this year around the US, Canada, and the UK. The WE movement grows every year.

This past August, my blogging friend Wendi shared a special connection with We Day when her daughter Ally was invited to sing on stage. Ally is instrumental in anti-bullying causes and writes her own blog called Loser Gurl. Check out Wendi’s post on We Day as well as Ally’s first post about her experience and her second post.
