We Day Inspires in Vancouver and around the World!
I had the privilege of being a volunteer for one of the most amazing Change the World organizations once again recently in Vancouver, BC. I have been fortunate to be part of this for the 4th year in a row and I’m always excited to be amongst the children and to know more about what they are going to do as an agent of change in this world. We Day not only makes a difference in the lives of many children, but impacts all those who volunteer. I can attest to that and how many people are inspired to continue making a difference.
In Vancouver recently, there were 20 thousand high school students in attendance in addition to a couple hundred thousand who have and will be participating in 13 cities in 3 countries. The students do not pay to attend although I’m sure they would. They earn their tickets through volunteering and this is a day where they are deservedly recognized for their amazing efforts. The bottomline is this is an organization that has and will continue to inspire millions to make a difference and I’m thrilled to be a small part of that. People always say, “But you’re just one person” – I think we need to ask Marc and Craig Kielburger if one person can make a movement like this happen!

The impact since 2007: Over 2.5 million young people from around the world take part in life changing programs and campaigns to make a difference, $45 million raised for more than 1,000 local and global causes, 14.6 million hours volunteered for local and global causes, 5.6 million lbs of food collected for local food banks, and 8.9 million hours of silence logged for those who are denied their rights.
Kids can make a Huge Difference too!
