I am thrilled to pieces to be going with OWL to We Day, a day-long event of inspiring speakers and awesome musical acts. Attendees to We Day don’t buy their tickets – they earn them through We Act, actions that promote local and global change.
We Day brings together over 1.7 million youth in North America and the United Kingdom. It gives them a once-in-a lifetime chance to hear musicians like Demi Lovato, the Jonas Brothers, and the Barenaked Ladies, and speakers like astronaut Colonel Chris Hadfield and President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia. Here’s a video all about this amazing event. Just watching it gets me pumped to make the world a better place!

I am especially excited to hear Martin Luther King III speak at We Day – his father’s “I Have a Dream” speech turned 50 this year and it has always inspired me to strive for equality.
If you are going to We Day, who are you looking forward to seeing and hearing the most? If you aren’t this year, what would you do for We Act to go next year?
Get out there and make the world better! Until next time,
