#WeDay Saskatchewan and Blackberry Q5 Giveaway
Earlier this year I was invited by Telus as a main sponsor of We Day to bring my daughter along and experience the shift in the youth from more than 300 Saskatchewan schools at Free The Children’s first ever We Day Saskatchewan. It was a day to remember, not only because of the treacherous road conditions making our way to Saskatoon and Martin Sheen blessing my baby due just over 2 weeks after the event but one of inspiration and awe. We Day Saskatchewan will hit the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon November 6th for the 2nd time.
I was looking forward to We Day Saskatchewan again but Baby Ro, being almost exclusively nursed, had other plans. Although I won’t be able to make it this time around, Miss Priss and a few of her classmates have earned their way. You see, you cannot buy a ticket to We Day, you have to earn it through service. Watching the thousands of youths in the crowd I could feel the vibration of energy build throughout the day. Each speaker that graced the stage touched a youth with their stories, with the reason We Day had become the point of change.
Award winning actor and activist Martin Sheen addressed the importance of youth activism, speaking to 15,000 local youth and supporters on stage. We had the opportunity to meet Martin personally; he was surprisingly down to earth and willing to answer any questions we had. My daughter and I found Martins speech very powerful; with all the other speakers Martin was the one who inspired us the most to do more but the inspiration for change was different for everyone.
International activists and Free The Children co-founders Craig and Marc Kielburger educate and empower 15,000 passionate youth and supporters at Free The Children’s We Day Saskatchewan.
At We Day Saskatchewan in February we met another performer, Shawn Desman. Not surprisingly Miss Priss was more than excited to meet him because of his sheer musical talent but more impressively he has repeatedly presented, performed and supported We Day events across Canada. New additions to the speaker and performer lineup include Magic Johnson, Tyler Shaw, Neverest, Molly Burke, Spencer West and several other motivations.
In partnership with Free the Children, TELUS has created We365. We365 is a free mobile app and website that enables young people to track and verify their volunteer activities for school, as well as provide the tools needed to fundraise, take action, and amplify messages for thousands of different charities. In its simplest form, it is a social platform to find and share inspiring content with like-minded users and friends, all while supporting causes most important to the individual.
To help you make a decisin for change with the FREE We365 downloadable app and in support of We Day Saskatchewan, I’m giving away a Blackberry Q5 smartphone thanks to TELUS. Powered by the BlackBerry® 10 operating system, every feature, every part of the new BlackBerry® Q5 smartphone has been built to flow and move with you and help you explore, create and share on the go.
