I had the extreme pleasure of going behind the scenes of We Day here in Calgary. Telus, who sponsors We Day, brought myself and a couple of other bloggers through all the nooks and crannies of the Saddledome to document all that was going on with a fab new Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone*.
To say that it impacted me has been a huge understatement. Well…here’s my first ever vlog to explain what I mean. Sorry for the tears. This is why I’m a writer and not a talker.
Here is a shot of us bloggers and the ever inspiring Spencer West.
We also had the privilege of meeting Molly and her dog Gypsy. I am just so impressed at the conviction such a young person can have. To be passionate about life and a cause at her age is just something that inspires me to keep doing what I love to do. Molly also spoke to us about how she was bullied and how it made her not want to keep on living. She over came so much and now she’s helping others do the same. She says she wants to be someone’s hope so when another young person feels like there’s nobody in their shoes -she can show them that there is. She’s brilliant and we were lucky to hear her speak even if it was just for a little while.
You can learn more about Spencer, Molly and the rest of the Free the Children, Me to We and We Day organizations HERE.
I also want to tell you about Telus and their $25 for Free the Children program because without their sponsorship We Day certainly wouldn’t be what it is nationally. If you’re interested in purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S III (which I’m so in love with!) they’ll give $25 to Free the Children. You can learn more HERE.
*Telus provided me with a Samsung phone at no charge to facilitate this post
