The We Day initiative is sweeping the nation and Telus has jumped on board as a major sponsor to keep the momentum going. For those not in the know, We Day is an inspiring series of events held across Canada where various world-renowned speakers gather to celebrate and empower young people who make a difference in communities around the world. This year seven cities in Canada are hosting We Day events and over 90,000 youth are expected to participate and join the movement.
Telus and Free the Children have just announced a five-year partnership as National Co-Title sponsor of We Day in order to help support youth empowerment. Telus has also launched a campaign called Phones for Good, in which they’ll donate $25 from the sale of every Samsung Galaxy SIII or Samsung Ace Q to Free the Children.
We Day festivities have already taken place this fall in Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary, but there’s still much more to come! Take in regional We Day events in Winnipeg on October 30, Kitchener/Waterloo on November 14, and Montreal on November 20, 2012. A National We Day Celebration will take place on April 29, 2013 in Ottawa at the Robert Guertin Arena.
Family Fun Canada is in on the We Day action too. Check out photos and our video from our experience at the We Day event in Calgary.
